Description: Girls’s Feet Frozen Both Are Amputated

Date: January 14 1919

ALBUQUERQUE, N. M., Jan. 13.—Miss Flora Cooper had both feet amputated at a local hospital today, made necessary by them being frozen while the girls was lost during a severe blizzard in the Zuni mountains, south of Grants, N. M., about 125 miles west of here.
Miss Cooper had been working in Raton and started home on a visit without notifying her parents to meet her. She alighted from the train at Grants and succeeded in obtaining a ride part of the way to her home, twenty-six miles from the railroad. She attempted to cover the rest of the distance on foot, became confused in the mountains and wandered all night. She was found the next day with both feet frozen so badly that amputation was necessary.
