A rescue party sent by Brigham Young helped them reach the Sweetwater River, but most were too weak to cross. Three eighteen-year-old boys from the rescue party, C. Allen Huntington, George W. Grant, and David P. Kimball, carried nearly every member of the handcart company across the freezing river. In later years, the three men died from complications arising from their heroic act.
