AMITY, Pa. (AP) – Authorities in western Pennsylvania say an elderly blind woman died after apparently getting lost near her residence while looking for her dog.
State police said she was looking for her dog near her residence after 6 p.m. when she apparently became disoriented.
Police said as night fell and colder temperatures set in, she “succumbed to pre-existing ailments.”
Personnel from the Long Pine fire department found her at about midnight in a wooden thicket next to a cornfield in Amwell Township.
