Diabetic UT Woman Rescued After Four Days Stranded in Desert
A hiker in Utah has a miraculous story to tell, finding a way to survive for days despite being unprepared for the elements – and suffering from a broken leg and diabetes.
FOX News Radio’s Steve Rappoport has the story:
Victoria Grover went on a six-mile hike in the Utah desert Tuesday with no food and light clothing, when suddenly…
(Grover) “I jumped and there was a rock under the sand, and it hit my leg and I had a broken leg.”
The 59-year-old physician assistant from Maine counted on her medical training and hope to stay alive. Grover slept in the shade during the day, and stayed awake at night curled up in a poncho as temperatures dropped into the low 30′s.
(Grover) “The last night I know I was very hypothermic because I stopped shivering.”
Authorities found Grover Saturday suffering from hypothermia, but doctors expect her to fully recover.
(Grover) “I had faith that whatever happened would be okay.”
