MEXICO, Maine (AP) – After breaking his leg in a snow mobile accident, a Maine man crawled 2½ miles in below-freezing temperatures to get help. Nicholas Brown says it took him more than six hours to crawl down a hill in Mexico last week to get to a friend’s house. The 57-year-old Brown says he had gone to his snowmobiling club’s clubhouse last Thursday to leave membership applications and maps. He lost control on some ice on his way home at about 9 p.m. and broke his leg. He didn’t have a cellphone, so he used his elbows to crawl on his belly a mile and a half to a road. Then he got up on his hands and knees to crawl, arriving at the friend’s home at 3:30 a.m. Friday.
