Stranded for days in Cabo San Lucas, with little food or water, firefighters from Hoffman Estates and some of their friends are finally back on American soil.

The nearly 50 Americans had traveled to Cabo San Lucas for a wedding but the dream trip quickly turned into a nightmare when Hurricane Odile struck.

After five days, help finally arrived. The group paid hotel workers in Mexico to get six vans off-site and give them a safe ride to the airport at 5:30 a.m. Mexico time.

Looters in recent days have made that impossible up until this point.
