A security sergeant at Everett Community College rushed to help a woman who was injured from a fall and covered in snow.
As Sgt. Nick Aldrich was finishing up his patrol Monday on the east side of Broadway, he saw a pile of snow near the intersection on the northwest corner of the WSU Everett building.
Aldrich looked closer and realized that a woman lying on the sidewalk was covered in snow.
The woman had lost body heat and was barely conscious and audible, officials said.
Aldrich flagged down an Everett police officer and called for help. He took off his jacket to keep the woman warm until medics arrived.
Officials said the woman, who lives in the area and was walking to a restaurant where she works, was crossing Broadway when she slipped and fell. She injured both her ankles and her wrist.
The woman rolled over to the sidewalk because she didn't want to get hit by a car. She did not know how long she had been lying on the sidewalk when Aldrich found her.
The woman was taken to the hospital but her condition is unknown.
