Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Another woman in Duluth has been hospitalized after she was found unconscious in an alley in sub-zero temperatures.

According to her Caring Bridge website, 30-year-old Erin Coons was found unconscious over the weekend near St. Mary's Hospital by a passerby.

Coons had to be airlifted to Regions Hospital in the Twin Cities for severe frostbite. Her family says she is awake but is still having difficulties breathing and has to have a feeding tube.
