    Thank you Miss Kidd for taking that extra step. You saved a life.

  • DontVote4LiarsCheatsOrThieves Feb 11, 7:56 p.m.

    Oh my goodness. What a blessing she was found in time. Prayers for her and many thanks to Kidd who acted quickly to notice and alert the authorities that something might be wrong.

    Blessed

    Good example of small community caring about one another~the hairdresser calling family.

    So what you're saying is... those of us who are "hair challenged" and don't get regular hair appointments are doomed!

  • mrschizzy Feb 11, 3:48 p.m.

    C'mon people! She's not getting a weekly hair cut and I'm almost positive she's not paying anywhere near $50. She's just going once a week to get it styled like most old ladies do at her age. My mother in law is in her late 70s and goes every Weds for a style. She isn't paying $50 either....

    You are an Angel Helen!

    I am glad she was found, but sad that she had to spend so much time alone in the cold. She looks much younger than 89 . . . she must be in great shape!

  • xylem01 Feb 11, 3:30 p.m.

    @KBIRD - Exactly. It's known as a Shampoo & Set.

  • Rolling Along Feb 11, 3:26 p.m.

    Lucky lady but a hair appt every week? Wow.

    Her hair, her money. FWIW my MIL is a retired hairdresser/cosmetologist she had regular customers for over 35 years that came at the same time every week. Unless they were on vacation/out of town.

  • rickandlinda88 Feb 11, 3:11 p.m.

    what a brave lady!!thank GOD they found her in time..love a happy ending...

  • 678devilish Feb 11, 3:10 p.m.

    Just glad she was found and will be OK.

  • EricaSliver Feb 11, 3:04 p.m.

    Oh my...poor lady. I'm surprised she was able to survive such cold conditions for so long. How fortunate that her hair stylist called her family. I'm thinking her family may want to get her a medical alert bracelet now...

    I'm sorry but with a core temperature at 72... you're dead.

    Obviously not.

    That's crazy if that actually was her core temp at the time. Below 83 and your organs begin shutting down.

  • kbird Feb 11, 2:09 p.m.

    I am so glad she was found & is safe! Justabill...ladies get their hair styled & set once a week when they are older. It's not a cut or something like that just a styling.

  • heelsgirl05 Feb 11, 1:44 p.m.

    What a great story! I wish the media would report more positive stories like this one. Gloom and doom gets so old!

  • scubagirl2 Feb 11, 1:38 p.m.

    Her hair looks really nice.

    Yours would too if you dropped 50 large every Friday.

    Sorry haircuts do NOT cost $50.00, maybe where you go

  • jscott13 Feb 11, 1:31 p.m.

    Justabill...cold statement. The hair appointment every week isn't really your call.

  • busyb97 Feb 11, 1:30 p.m.

    Leave her be. How is it any different than the luxuries anyone else takes? A $4 cup of coffee every morning, or a manicure, or the latest gadgets.

  • NCishome Feb 11, 1:30 p.m.

    My Mom fell back the morning of November 2011 and broke her hip. The neighbor saw her dog and did not see her...she had attempted to drag herself so that she could be seen from the road. If it had not been for the dog who laid down beside her to keep her warm. The outcome would have been worst. She was found at 5pm. It took them over 6 hours to bring her core temp back up.

    what an amazing lady!

    What a lucky lady, and pretty hardy as well to have survived that. Glad she was found, kudos to the hair stylist for going out of her way.
