Woman survives after plunge into reservoir
GRANBY, Colo. A woman who drove her snowmobile into the icy waters of a reservoir barely survived, with her body temperature dropping to 80 degrees before she was flown by helicopter to a Denver hospital. Initially in critical condition, her condition was later upgraded to "fair," reported the Sky-Hi News.
She and two companions were snowmobiling on the ice of Shadow Mountain Reservoir, a reservoir used in trans-mountain diversions. After she drove into the open water portion of the reservoir, a companion drove his snowmobile toward the edge, but his snowmobile fell through. He managed to get himself out and went for help. A second man then tried to push a ladder to the woman from the edge of the ice, but he also broke through. Arriving rescuers plucked him out, and then the woman, who was unconscious and floating in the water.
Real estate sales defy conventional wisdom
PARK CITY, Utah Last summer a statistician with the Park City Board of Realtors went out on the limb, predicting $700 million in sales for the year. He was wrong. Sales were $772 million, a record in the Park City area. Now, some real-estate agents are predicting even more sales this year.
Sales prices of single-family homes registered with the Board of Realtors rose 14 per cent. The inventory of mansions dropped, but the more active market continued to be the mid-sized single-family homes. Condo prices dropped 13 per cent although volume increased.
