7:14 am
a time like that, that always makes you feel good. >> reporter: rescuers finally arrived thursday by air. >> when i saw the sight as we landed in the helicopter, i realized that there was no way people were going to give up on the search, and that was something that, you know, crossed my mind a couple of times. >> reporter: but before their next camping trip, their father has some advice. >> tell us where you're going. that would be really helpful. >> reporter: for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, jackson hole, wyoming. >> what a remarkable story. we want to turn now to a horrific crash that is raising new concerns about your safety on the road and on the rails. this collision, which was all caught on dash cam, taking place right before the driver's eyes saying he was shocked to see those railroad crossing gates, well, they never went down, and the train pummeled into that truck. abc's mary bruce is in queens, new york, this morning where that frightening crash took place. good morning, mary. >> reporter: hey, paula, good morning. this is a busy crossing. in fact, in just the last decade, there have been more than a dozen accidents here, the latest one, almost unimaginable.

7:16 am
>> we have four patients, be advised they're all critical. >> reporter: with only 36% of public railway crossings equipped with safety gates, experts say drivers also need to be more alert. >> the message is that we have driver issues and we need education. we need awareness at crossings. >> reporter: it's hard to believe but amazingly this driver had only minor injuries and the train engineers were unharmed. other truck drivers tell us near misses here are frequent and that these gates often don't come down. investigators of this latest crash are now looking into these signals. dan and paula. >> but the good news there, nobody seriously hurt. we really appreciate your reporting this morning. mary, thank you. and we're going to make a turn now to a much happier story. in the words of our good friend robin roberts, new york city's canyon of heroes was transformed into the canyon of heroines. >> yes, and it was a beautiful sight. team usa, the women's world cup champs were celebrated. they were cheered and showered
