US student who was stranded for 9 days in her car due to heavy snow survives on candy bars and melted snow

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - A college student stranded by heavy snow in her car for nine days on a barren Arizona road has been rescued after living on candy bars and melted snow, authorities said on Thursday. Arizona State University student Lauren Weinberg, 23, was found Wednesday by two US Forest Service employees patrolling on snowmobiles, Coconino County Sheriff's Office patrol Lieutenant Jim Coffey said. Ms Weinberg, who was found about 74km from the town of Winslow in northern Arizona, was reported missing after she was last seen in Phoenix on Dec 11, the sheriff's office said. Ms Weinberg was driving her sedan on Dec 12 with no specific destination in mind when her car got stuck in over 45cm of snow, Coffey said. She was taken by patrol car to Flagstaff Medical Center to make sure she wasn't suffering from frostbite and dehydration, before being released.
