Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Dale Trusdale’s son was 14 years old. After many readers pointed out the impossibility of this given that Trusdale has been in his Y2K bunker for 22 years, The Seekonk Reporter conducted further research and found that the boy is in fact 13 years old. We apologize for the error and any confusion it may have caused.
In addition, we would like to remind our readers that while Dale’s decision to build a Y2K bunker may have seemed unusual at the time, it is important to respect his choices and the sacrifices he made for his family. We apologize for any confusion created by the original story.
