i have a character that slept in a snowstorm and woke up with hypothermia. is it possible to have survived around 6-8 hours with it and what are the side effects? if u dont mind hehe
How long it takes for someone to freeze to death depends on conditions and the type of exposure, but death can occur in under an hour if conditions are dangerous enough. Six to eight hours sounds like a stretch (especially if they were sleeping, which means they couldn't stay active to keep their temperature up) unless they were in several good layers of winter clothing and insulated from the wind and such while they slept.
Symptoms of hypothermia here: [x]
