A Dallas woman has been saved by one of her neighbors just in the nick of time after she fell asleep in her home during the snow storm without any heating according to a Dallas Morning News article from February 22nd. in it they say:
“Pastor Bobbyray Williams was working on his Sunday sermon at Living Word Missionary Baptist Church, just a tenth of a mile from Uberbacher’s home on Shelburne drive in Riverway Estates/Bruton Terrace, near the border of Mesquite.
Williams, who lives in Waxahachie, had considered staying home Tuesday. His typical 30-minute commute took more than an hour as he inched forward on snow and ice.
Instead, he was at his desk just before 10 a.m. to answer a frantic call from Foster, trying to find someone to check on her friend before police arrived.”
Williams found said friend and woke them up from their possibly fatal sleep.
