CHARLESTON. (AP) — Military helicopter crews made a special delivery of baby formula to a young mother and her infant son in a remote area of snow-bound Preston County.

Preston County emergency management director Duane Hamilton told the Charleston Gazette  23-year-old Brittany Sypolt was running out of baby formula for her 2-month-old son when the delivery was made Friday. She lives on a mountaintop where Superstorm Sandy dumped 2 and a half feet of snow.

Lt. Kevin Smith of Charleston's 130th Airlift Wing said he did a medical check on Sypolt and her baby, then left them with four days of formula.

He said she decided to remain at home with her baby until roads are cleared of snow in a couple days.

Two neighbors wanted out, and they were removed by guard units.
