Husband says MN woman trapped in car recovering


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The husband of a Minnesota woman who was trapped in her overturned car in an icy pond says she's expected to recover.

Authorities say 67-year-old Nancy Breberg, of Centerville, was looking for a hotel in St. Louis Park when she veered off the road, crashed through a fence, landed on the pond and became trapped for 18 hours until a bicyclist found her Saturday.

Her husband, Ron Breberg, tells The Associated Press she's on a breathing tube and sedated as part of the recovery process at Hennepin County Medical Center. But he says doctors don't think she'll need skin grafts for her frostbitten feet.

Breberg says she could not get her door open or crawl out a broken window, so she spent the 18 hours hoping and praying someone would find her.
