A woman and her husband spent three days stuck in the mountains before rescue crews found them.

Patricia New and her husband went for a drive last Saturday in the mountains near their home in Idaho.

Their truck got stuck and her 78-year old husband could not dig it out.

They hiked around but there was no cell service.

They had a few granola bars and a coffee cup that they filled with snow.

On the third day, Patricia's husband hiked to a different spot to find cell service and the call finally went through.

Rescuers were able to locate the cellphone and they were rescued.

Patricia is back at work and celebrating her 70th birthday.
