CAMBRIDGE - An 83-year-old Washington County woman is recovering after she was found in a snow bank in Cambridge.

A police officer found the woman after seeing her legs sticking out of some snow on North Park Street on Saturday morning.

The officer got the woman out.  She was only wearing a robe.

She was unconscious as she was rushed to the hospital.

It's still unclear how the woman ended up in the snow bank in the first place, but the quick-actions of the police officer certainly saved her life.
