South Lake Tahoe shows a car buried in snow in South Lake Tahoe Calif

An unidentified South Lake Tahoe, California woman trapped in her snowed-covered auto was dug out by authorities after a snowplow collided with her buried vehicle.

The unidentified woman told police officers she had been in the auto for about four to five hours, but authorities believe the woman was actually living in the vehicle. It was only when they saw a hand against the window that they realized someone was inside, reports the Reno Gazette Journal.

"After digging out the driver side, a 48-year old woman was discovered inside the vehicle", the City of South Lake Tahoe said in a statement.

"She wasn't trying to get out", recalled South Lake Tahoe city spokesman Chris Fiore, as quoted by Associated Press.

If you were confused after seeing some funky looking vans scattered throughout the map in Fortnite recently, you're not alone. The idea was further corroborated by dataminer FortTroy, who posted an image of the "Second Chance Van" in the game files.

It was just an ordinary day for a snowplow driver in California, until he struck a vehicle buried in snow - then his day turned into a rescue mission.

When officers arrived, he helped them dig the vehicle out of the snow.

Police said they do not know if she was living in her auto or where she was from. "She wasn't making any noise". He said the city has had problems with illegally parked vehicles, which slows snow removal. She declined medical attention and left and the vehicle was towed. "Being inside of a buried vehicle, or starting a auto buried in snow could have deadly consequences". "If we had not gotten to her, I'm afraid this story would have a very different ending".
