A missing Phoenix woman was found alive on Wednesday after she'd been stranded in her car in the Northeast part of the state. Lauren Weinberg is now safe and recovering from an ordeal that could have very well ended her young life.
The missing 23-year-old ASU student was found alive in a remote area near Winslow, Arizona. Her car reportedly got stuck in some snow when she tried to turn around in an area that couldn't be driven. For six days, the young woman fought the freezing temperatures and dehydration by staying bundled up in her car and keeping a water bottle packed with snow. She'd melt the snow in the water bottle by sitting it in the sun during the day.
Had she not been found and rescued, Lauren Weinberg may not have survived. The temperatures in northern Arizona this time of year are chilling cold, and the winds in the Winslow area only make the icy air worse. Lauren is truly lucky to be alive right now, as it is difficult to say whether or not many people would survive like this for six days.
