NEGAUNEE, Mich. — Police say a 52-year-old woman who didn’t appear at work was found trapped in snow outside her Upper Peninsula home.

A Michigan state trooper carried the woman into her home in the Negaunee area and called for an ambulance Tuesday. She had been trapped for two hours between the garage and a large snow pile and was suffering from exposure to the cold.

The Negaunee area was slammed with at least 15 inches of snow over the weekend.
