“I just held my son and started to cry” Angus family trapped as icy water engulfs their crashed car

Fidaa and husband Alexander, from Montrose, were travelling to Inverness with son Zakaryah on Saturday morning.  They chose to take the scenic route via Crathie and Tomintoul but encountered snow on the B976 road just beyond Ballater. When the car couldnÕt climb a steep hill, they turned around. However, on the way back down they hit black ice and ploughed straight on.  The car hit a snow pole before going Òstraight over the edgeÓ and flipping over, coming to rest in a water-filled hollow.
