The timing could not have been more eerie. It was the night of Friday the 13th in 1998, under the light of the full moon, when then 26-year-old Jennifer French went on a midnight snowboarding run with some friends on a New England mountain. Everyone made it to the bottom of the slope – except for French.
“I hit a patch of ice,” French, who is now 41 and lives in St. Petersburg, Fla., told FoxNews.com. “I only remember a few vignettes….but I do remember – I was lying face down in the snow, and I looked up and saw the full moon as I was crying for help.”
French’s boyfriend at the time and current husband, Tim French, soon became concerned about her absence and trudged up the mountain to find her. Once he discovered her in the snow, he ran for help as fast as he could. It ultimately took two snowmobiles to get French out of the embankment and to an ambulance. While the night is a very vivid memory for Tim, French said it was a blur for her.
