Default Urgent- Help Needed

This is probably posted in the wrong section, but the pub gets the most views, and this is urgent. There is a member of a 4x4 group I'm part of stranded with is family, and no way to get back on the road. He is in Waukegan, Illinois. All he needs is to change his wheel bearing, but his wrench broke while trying to break the hub loose.
He has his wife and two young children with him. If anybody in that area could help, either with some tools/manpower or just some food and warmth for his family, it would be greatly appreciated.

bearing bolts are 12mm 12 point.
the center hub nut is 36mm I think?
I can imagine he broke a 36mm socket, so im guessing 12mm is needed?
awful nice of u to help!

He has the socket. He snapped off what looks like a cheap Chinese 3/8 drive wrench

I'm guessing he will need a torch and a quality breaker bar.

that looks like a cheap 1/2" ratchet. Prob needs a 1/2" breaker bar. May want to bring the rest of the tools needed to save a trip. Or bring the trailer and bring the car back to the tools :D
