Carson City, Nevada -
A family member says a U.S. woman ate snow and tomatoes for nearly a week and found shelter in a hollowed-out tree after she became stranded in a winter storm and her boyfriend died trying to find help.
The Nevada Appeal reported Friday that 46-year-old Paula Lane is hospitalized with frostbite after her six-night ordeal.
Searchers found the body of Lane's 44-year-old boyfriend, Roderick Paul Clifton, in California's Alpine County.
The couple from the state of Nevada was reported missing on November 29.
Their Jeep Cherokee got stuck during a snowstorm the following morning on a dirt road near the lake. - Sapa-AP
