Mar 20, 2017
A Labrador woman who lost fingers and part of one leg after falling asleep outdoors in sub-zero temperatures is recovering from a horrific experience, thanks to family and friends who pitched in to help.
In February of last year, Hopedale resident Gerri Boase, 29, fell asleep in a komatik box in front of the community’s hydro diesel plant where she was exposed to extreme cold.
She doesn’t remember much of what happened.
“I kind of just remember being down in the hotel playing cards,” she said in an interview with CBC Radio’s Labrador Morning.
