Colorado woman trapped in car for six days wrote pleas for help on umbrella Published: May 6, 2014

A woman trapped inside a wrecked car in the Colorado mountains for days scribbled desperate messages on a red and white umbrella, saying the doors wouldn't open, she was bleeding and she needed help, the Denver Post reports.

Kristin M. Hopkins, 43, of Highlands Ranch, was rescued Sunday after hikers spotted her flipped Chevrolet Malibu about 200 feet off of U.S. 285 at Red Hill Pass near Fairplay.

Hopkins, who had been missing since Tuesday, was flown by Flight for Life to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood in critical condition. A family spokesman said Hopkins, a single mother of four, was to have both feet amputated Monday afternoon.
