    Lost Hiker Found Alive-2

    by

    Julie Horgan, a 61-year-old hiker from Milton, Massachusetts, was found safe and without injury Sunday morning after spending a frigid night alone on Mount Jackson in New Hampshire.

    "Winds at the time were between 70 and 90 mph, creating blizzard conditions with near zero visibility," according to Fish and Game Lt. Doug Gralenski. "These were life threatening conditions."

    Search-and-rescue teams were out until 2 a.m. Sunday morning, and the search resumed at sunrise. Horgan was found just before 10 a.m. near the summit of the 4,052-foot peak where she had spent the night "holed up in the softwood."

    She was able to walk out on her own after the ordeal, accompanied by about two dozen search-and-rescue team members. She declined to comment on her ordeal, except to say, "I am deeply grateful" to those who searched for her.

    So far, it's estimated that at least 6,000 people have been killed or are missing. The huge wave swept away boats, cars and homes that were already damaged by the quake.
