A Canadian woman was found alive, buried in 58cm of snow three days after she went missing

Rescuers were amazed when they found Donna Molnar of Ancaster, west of Toronto, still conscious after she spent three days buried in snow. Ms Molnar, 55, vanished on Friday after her car became stuck in a snowy field during a blizard.

She is now being treated in hospital for hypothermia and frostbite.  She was found a few yards away from her car, wearing little more than a winter jacket with just her face and neck exposed.  It is believed the insulating effect of the snow contributed to keeping her alive.

Canada and much of the US have been hit by extreme winter weather in recent days, with vast amounts of snow falling from coast to coast.
