Kati Kim Story, The tragic story of a family trapped for days in a car during a winter storm in Oregon is said on a two hour “20/20″ (ABC, 21 pm), “Wrong Turn: The Story Kati Kim.” Cornel West, Matthew Perry, Arianna Huffington and journalists Hooman Majd and Norah O’Donnell are regular guests on a new “Real Time with Bill Maher” (HBO, 22 pm).

Kim and her husband James were traveling through Oregon in November 2006 with their two children, aged four and seven months, when they took a wrong turn off Interstate 5 near Grants Pass, in an effort to get in Gold Beach along the Oregon coast.

Before long they found themselves stranded in the snow in the Coast Range on Bear Camp Road, a narrow logging road. Their disappearance led to a massive rescue effort by researchers from Oregon south and coverage of news coverage by the Oregonian newspaper and many others, and television.

Finally, Kim’s vehicle was spotted from a helicopter piloted by a businessman seeking assistance.

California woman, who survived nine days in the desert south of Oregon with her two children, will give her first detailed account of the incident on ABC’s “20/20″ news magazine on February 4.

ABC says the documentary is narrated by “20/20″ correspondent Jay Schadler and includes interviews with the rescuers who risked their own lives to save Kim.

The documentary is “Wrong Turn” will be aired from 9-11am, Friday, Feb. 11 on ABC affiliates.

After a break in Roseburg, Oregon, the couple was to take Route 42 to exit 119. This output has been missed. And rather than turn around and head back, they have provided another way to get back on track. They missed their connection, and then another connection. They finally ended up driving, not on a road, but on a forest path.

Realizing they had no idea where they were, the Kim parked their car and ate their remaining food packed. Soon their emissions disappeared, their food was exhausted. Instead, the animals began to try to attack them. Kati turned breastfeeding Sabine and Penelope for their food supply.

After seven nights stuck in the desert, deep snow, they had lost all hope. But they had no idea that James’s father sent three rescue helicopters. Investigators had traced phone calls last of Kim and another helicopter was dispatched to the region. After seven days, James has decided to leave the car and start hiking to help. Ultimately, on Kati and the children would be rescued safely.
