(Duluth, MN) -- A 19-year-old University of Minnesota-Duluth sophomore is hospitalized in the Twin Cities with hypothermia after sleeping outside on a porch Friday night in subzero weather. The "St. Cloud Times" reports 19-year-old Alyssa Jo Lommel was in stable-critical condition Monday at Regents Hospital in St. Paul. She was found unconscious on a neighbor's front porch around 9:30 Saturday morning after being dropped off at her home some nine hours earlier. Temperatures fell to around 17 degrees below zero as she slept outside, and her parents have been told she may lose at least one hand or foot.
