(Newser) – A student at Arizona State University survived 10 days in her snowbound car before Forest Service workers happened across her by accident, reports KSAZ-TV. Lauren Elizabeth Weinberg, 23, had only two candy bars to eat and melted snow to drink, but she's doing fine. Weinberg set off from the Phoenix area to explore remote parts of the state but got stranded in a blizzard soon after.

"I am so thankful to be alive and warm," she said in Flagstaff. "Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers, because they worked. There were times I was afraid, but mostly I had faith I would be found." (Read more Lauren Elizabeth Weinberg stories.)
