Woman who climbed icy Teller County slope after wreck heads home

Jude Ruddy moves a blanket to cover Sandy Mileto, whose car slid off the road and down a cliff, stranding her in the freezing cold for five hours Tuesday night, as she recovers in the Pikes Peak Regional Hospital with frostbite on both her hands and feet Thursday, April 25, 2013. Mileto climbed back up to the road through the snow with only one shoe. "The whole time I pretty much knew I was going to lose this foot," Mileto said. Michael Ciaglo, The Gazette
