A high school student who was one of four family members rescued after three nights stranded in the Northern California mountains will spend Christmas with her family at home.
Alexis Dominguez, 15, was hospitalized early Thursday after suffering pain in her toes from minor frostbite.
The nursing supervisor at Feather River Hospital, Alice Pastrano, says Dominguez is "doing very well" and will be released Saturday afternoon.
Alexis, along with her father, Frederick Dominguez, 38, and her two brothers, Christopher, 18, and Joshua, 12, was snatched from the cold Wednesday afternoon after they were spotted by a helicopter crew.
During their three-day ordeal, the girl lost one of her shoes and her toes became discolored.
