Lommel, 19, was found unconscious on her neighbor's porch in the extreme cold last Saturday morning. The UMD student from St. Cloud suffered severe hypothermia and her family has been meeting with a plastic surgeon to discuss skin graft options for their daughter's injuries.

Lommel was dropped off outside her house around midnight and was discovered about 9 hours later, laying on the porch of her neighbor's house. The neighbors were not home at the time.
