ACWORTH, Ga. - An Acworth couple stranded in Peru amid violent protests are on their way home.
Callie Annis and Christian Echegoyen were stuck in the country while protesters blocked roads, train tracks and flights following the arrest of the former Peruvian president. They're expecting a child in a few months.
Loved ones are breathing a sigh of relief since they've boarded their flight back home. They'll be with family in time for the holidays.
Family shared an image of the couple on a jet with FOX 5 Atlanta.
