University of Minnesota-Duluth student Alyssa Lommel is recovering from surgery to remove parts of her frostbitten feet.
In a CaringBridge post, Teri Lommel wrote that her daughter lost only the tips of her toes on one foot, while the other foot was amputated just below the ball of the foot.
Lommel, 19, was found unconscious on her neighbor's porch in the extreme cold on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 7. She had been dropped off outside her house around midnight and was discovered about 9 hours later by a passerby.
A benefit fund has been set up in Alyssa's name. Donations can be sent to:
