DULUTH - A frostbitten woman found Sunday in a Duluth alley will face surgery to remove her toes, according to her CaringBridge Web page.


Erin Coons’ “left toes are dead (and) there’s no blood flowing to the tips of them. Her toes will be amputated,” wrote her sister, Erica Coons. “She will need skin grafting, but how much is still unknown because the healing process takes time.”
