DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- A 19-year-old college student is in critical condition after being found unconscious and suffering from hypothermia on the porch of a Duluth home.

Alyssa Jo Lommel was found Saturday morning after spending the night outside in subzero temperatures.

Duluth police say Lommel was at Regions Hospital in St. Paul Monday. Her condition was described as "stable critical."

Police say Lommel, a sophomore at the University of Minnesota Duluth, was found unconscious on the porch of her neighbor's house just after 9:30 a.m. Saturday. She had been dropped off at her home in Duluth at about midnight.

Lommel's parents, Jay and Teri Lommel of St. Cloud, told the St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/1ktKZOt ) their daughter suffered significant damage to her hands and feet and could lose one or more of them.
