MEXICO, Maine (AP) - A man crawled a little over a mile in below-freezing temperatures to get help after breaking his leg in a snowmobiling accident.
Nicholas Brown, 57, says it took him more than six hours to crawl down a hill in Mexico last week to get to a friend's house.
Brown tells the Sun Journal he had gone to his snowmobiling club's clubhouse last Thursday to leave membership applications and maps.
The accident occured near Thompson Hill Road when he lost control on some ice on his way home at about 9:00pm and broke his leg.
He didn't have a cellphone, so he used his elbows to crawl on his belly a mile and a half to a road. Then he got up on his hands and knees to crawl, arriving at the friend's home at 3:30 a.m. Friday.
