Woman who climbed icy Teller County slope after wreck heads home

Sandy Mileto attempts to move her fingers after a serious crash Tuesday night stranded her in the cold off Highway 67, leaving her with frostbitten hands and feet. To make it back up to the road, Mileto had to make a long trek up a cliff with just one shoe. "It was either I lay here and die, or get up and just do it," Mileto said Thursday, April 25, 2013 while recovering in the hospital. Michael Ciaglo, The Gazette
