Woman Survives Nine Days In AZ Wilderness

A woman survived for nine days on pond water and plants after getting lost in a forest, executive have said.

Ann Rodgers, seventy-two, had been travelling with her dog from Tucson, Arizona, to Phoenix on thirty-first March.

She'd been planning to visit her grandchildren but she got lost in the White Mountains and her hybrid vehicle ran out of petrol and electricity.

After a few days, she'd running out of the emergency food and water she kept in her car so resorted to desperate measures.

She told Tucson TV Sta KOLD: "I was eating desert plants.

"My dog was too - diving into clovers and finding all the places that were easiest to go."

Ms Rodgers'south car was found three days after she became lost and her dog was found on ninth April.

But rescue crews struggled to discover her until a flight crew spotted a "help" signal made of sticks and rocks on the ground.

She was found nearby on the Fort Apache Reservation.

Ms Rodgers said that after she got on the rescue helicopter, she'd sat down and cried.

Authorities declare she was suffering from exposure but was otherwise well and able to obtain on the helicopter with little help.

A spokesman for the Dept of Public Safety said it was unclear how Ms Rodgers had become lost in the eastern portion of the state - the drive from Tucson to Phoenix is straight along Interstate ten, which doesn't running through the portion of the state where she was eventually found.

The rescue comes after three men were rescued from a Micronesian island after searchers spotted their "help" message spelled out with palm fronds.

They were rescued two days after their boat capsized.
