Grandma Lost In Wilderness Rescued After Writing ‘HELP’ In Rocks And Sticks

An Arizona woman and her bird-dog stranded in the state’s White Mountain for nine daytimes were rescued thanks to her resourcefulness.

Ann Rodgers, 72 , spelled out the word “HELP” on a valley storey, NBC News reported. Rescue employees in a helicopter spotted the meaning on Saturday, nine daytimes after she was reported missing on March 31, according to Reuters. Shortly afterwards, saviors met Rodgers in the same area, standing near a signal fire. She also left a handwritten tone under one of the stones explaining her quandary .

This aerial photo provided by the Arizona Department of Public security evidences a “help” sign made by Ann Rodgers, 72, in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona.

Rodgers had been driving from Tucson to Phoenix to saw her grandchildren, but got lost and ran out of gas. She became even more lost — and separated from her automobile — after climbing several ridges in an attempt to get cell phone service.

“The probabilities of noticing her alive were really low-grade, ” Gila County Sheriff’s Detective Johnny Holmes told The Guardian . “It’s a miracle on its own that she’s still here rendered she was out there that many days.”

But when asked by an NBC 12 reporter whether she felt like a miracle, Rodgers greeted, “No, what I feel like is a survivor.”

Rodgers and her pup endured by drinking pond water and eating floras she knew were safe to deplete. Rescue proletarians brought her to a infirmary, and she used released in only a few hours.

Her rescue is bizarrely reminiscent of a floor from last week of three Micronesian guys stranded on an uninhabited island “whos” rescued after spelling out “HELP” in palm fronds .
