Frozen Student Found Face Down in Snow
OXFORD, Ohio (WKRC) -- Frigid temperatures earlier this month could have killed a Miami University student.
Police say he was so intoxicated he passed out in a yard. A neighbor found him the morning of January 6th and called 911.
"My husband just found a body outside, he's bringing it into the house."
Dispatch asked, "Is the person breathing?"
"Yes, he's alive. He's frozen, he was lying face down in the snow."
A life squad responded and found the young man's legs frozen solid. Medics took him to McCullough-Hyde Hospital then later transferred him to UC Medical Center.
Officers told the student's parents he was very lucky to not lose any body parts or suffer brain damage.
