Colorado woman will lose both feet after surviving in wrecked car for 5 days - CBS News
This woman is so lucky a hiker found her before it was too late. I've been to the Rockies and I can see how it would be difficult to see her car, actually from the highway impossible in many places.

I remember thinking when we were out there and we were driving along the mountain road and I looking off the side that if we had a wreck it could be months before someone discovered us. I found that thought rather scary.

I honestly don't know how she would have any hope for rescue in time. I would have been laying there after a day thinking this is where I'm going to die. Poor woman, glad she is going to be okay but she will be losing both feet.
