72-year-old woman rescued after being lost for 9 days in the wilderness by writing HELP in sticks

Ann Charon Rodgers survived for 9 whole days while lost in the Arizona wilderness and was rescued after using sticks and rocks to spell out the word 'HELP' in a clearing in the forest in Arizona. The senior citizen is said to have survived by drinking pond water and eating plants.

Rodgers, from Tucson, Arizona, went missing on March 31 when she left home to travel to Phoenix to see her grandchildren. At some point she ran out of gas and tried making a call but did not have cell service so she climbed several ridges in an attempt to get better mobile phone reception but got lost in the process.

She was taken to the hospital after her rescued but has since been released and reunited with her family.
