Comstock Park, Mich. (WZZM) - For many here in West Michigan, the earthquake in Santiago, Chile may seem like a world away.
But one couple volunteering at this year's Winter Beer Fest in Comstock Park say they were a moment of fate away from seeing it in person.
George and Jill Bosnjak had vacation plans in South America. They picked Santiago randomly, but after a rash of winter storms blanketed the northeast, their flight was canceled.
George and Jill say the place they would have been staying was less than 50-miles from the quake's epicenter.
