Girl Rescued from Florida Jungle
Eleven-year-old Nadia Bloom lost her way in the gnarled woods near Orlando, Florida. She had gone out to take some pictures of the local wildlife, which includes alligators and snakes.
During her four-day ordeal, Nadia subsisted on plants: "I tried to eat a fern, but it was so gross I spit it out. And there were these plants. They have spongy insides and you can eat them and they're green. I ate those."
A volunteer rescuer found Nadia covered in insect bites. She had slept where ever she found, include inside of a fallen log. The only good part of getting lost? Being found. "I thought I was never going to be found out there, but it turned out I was, and that was the exciting part," said Nadia.
