A teenager in Michigan wanted a milkshake so she and a cousin went to McDonalds but it was closed. After two other tries, their car got stuck. They spent the night in the car and then walked to help.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene.

A teenager in Michigan just wanted a milkshake. She and a cousin went to McDonald's, but it was closed. They used their GPS, found another McDonald's 12 miles away, also closed. The next McDonald's no longer existed. Around this point, their car got caught in a snow bank. Worried family members called police, who searched for hours. The cousins spent the night in the car, and walked to a business in the morning to call for help.

They may have had that GPS, just no cell phone. Turned into quite a McFiasco.

It's MORNING EDITION.
