Doctors Amputate Alyssa Lommel’s Fingers

ST. PAUL – The amputations for a St. Cloud native, and University of Minnesota Duluth student, due to frostbite are more extensive than doctors had originally planned.

On Alyssa Jo Lommel’s CaringBridge website, her mother noted yesterday that doctors at Regions Hospital in St. Paul had to amputate all of her fingers below the knuckle.

The 19-year-old suffered severe frostbite and hypothermia in early December after being dropped off at her home in Duluth following a night of drinking, and she fell asleep on the front porch.

Lommel was found roughly nine hours later, still outside after enduring sub-zero temperatures overnight.
