Rescued Woman Knew She'd Never See Boyfriend Again

Posted: Updated:

A Nevada woman who survived six frigid days in the Sierra says she asked her boyfriend not to venture out for help after their Jeep became stuck in mud on a back road.

Paula Lane says she remembers telling 44-year-old Roderick Clifton they should stay with vehicle and ride out the storm together.

Instead, she says Clifton gave her a wave and walked away.

Speaking Monday on NBC's "Today Show," Lane says she knew she'd never see Clifton again.

Lane is recovering from frostbite at a Carson City hospital. She was rescued by her brother and a friend on Dec. 5 -- six days after she and Clifton became stranded in California's remote Hope Valley while traveling back to Gardnerville from visiting relatives.

Clifton's body was recovered the same day.  (AP)
