Video: 4-year-old rescued from mudslide

OSO, Wash. (CNN) — Newly released video shows the rescue of a boy who was trapped by last weekend’s landslide in Washington state.

Four-year-old Jacob Spillers made it out of the wreckage in Oso on Saturday.

He was in an upstairs room when the mudslide crashed into his home. His mother was at work at the time.

But, as of this morning, Jacob’s father and three half-siblings had not made it out of the house.

The official death toll stands at 16. That’s expected to rise now that crews believe they’ve located eight more bodies — but have not yet recovered them.
