N. Idaho Man Recovering Thanks To Cab Driver's Help
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A Coeur d'Alene man is recovering after being found unconscious and bleeding in the snow by a cab driver and passenger.
Twenty-seven-year-old Damon Rowe was found early Thursday morning laying in a Coeur d'Alene street.
Rescue workers told the Coeur d'Alene Press Rowe might not have survived much longer if
cab driver Eugene Adkison had not spotted Rowe and stopped to help.
Adkison says he found Rowe in clothes that were soaking wet and crystalizing. Adkison says he thought Rowe was dead.
Rowe says he doesn't recall what led to him passing out on the street, but acknowledges meeting friends at a bar then walking home around midnight as temperatures dipped into the 20s.
Police say they are not investigating due to a lack of evidence suggesting foul play.
