Woman ate tomatoes, snow while stranded in Sierra

CARSON CITY, Nev. — A Nevada woman survived on snow and tomatoes for nearly a week and found shelter in a hollowed-out tree after she was stranded in a winter storm and her boyfriend died trying to find help, a family member said.

Paula Lane of Gardnerville was rescued Wednesday on a dirt road in the Sierra Nevada after her brother, suspecting the couple might have returned to Burnside Lake where they had camped before, took a highway front loader to look for her, the Nevada Appeal reported.
