Jean Hilliard was a normal 19 year old woman, but an incident in her home town of Lengby, Minnesota was enough to make her a one in a million mystery woman after she was discovered completely frozen from head to toe. Jean had endured temperatures of twenty-five degrees below zero for an unknown amount of time. Her arms would not move, and were thought to be completely stiff from the cold. She was also completely frozen in some places, with ice clinging to her. She had been trying to make contact with the neighbor who found her when she had been trapped by the ice and frozen solid after her car wrecked after skidding on the ice.
When the Jeansicle arrived at the hospital doctors tried to thaw her out, but nobody had much hope for a happy ending. Even if she wasn’t dead, all medical evidence suggested she’d at least have severe frostbite and brain damage. As Jean lay wrapped in an electric heating pad her eyelids began to flutter, and after some time she thawed completely, returning to life as if nothing had happened. She showed absolutely no ill effects from her little nap in the snowbank — no frostbite, no brain damage, not even any freezer burn. The 19-year old woman from North Dakota had, essentially, come back from the dead completely unharmed.
