A 72-year-old woman and her dog were rescued after being stranded for nine days in the Arizona wilderness without food or clean water.
Ann Rodgers got lost on March 31 while traveling to visit her grandkids. Her car ran out of fuel in a remote area –– so remote that she said she came across no signs of life the entire time she was lost.
"I was eating desert plants. My dog was, too ..." Rodgers told CBS.
On April 9, an officer found Rodgers' dog. A helicopter crew then spotted the word "help" spelled out in rocks and sticks, and Rodgers was soon found nearby.
"When that helicopter, that air rescue police copter landed, I just sat down and bawled. Remarkable, remarkable, remarkable," Rodgers told CBS.
Rogers and her dog were in decent shape when they were found. In fact, Rodgers reportedly felt well enough to go on a hike a few days later.
