HOWELL, Mich. — "She said she kept praying to the Blessed Mother and she just kept thinking.. if someone doesn't find me I'm going to be dead ," said Sandy St. Onge-Mitter about her mother who had slipped on some ice in her garage at night and prayed someone would find her in the bitter cold temperatures in time.

About an hour and a half later, 10-year-old Danny DiPietro and his dad were driving home from a hockey game and Danny spotted what he thought was a dog out of the corner of his eye.

"It was late at night and super cold out and their garage was open and something just didn't feel right," Danny told 7 Action News.
