Lost California hiker survived 9 days with broken leg


FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say determination, strength and a two-day crawl to a stream for water helped a 62-year-old woman survive while she was lost in the Sierra Nevada for nine days with a broken leg.

Fresno County sheriff's Deputy Jason Vinogradoff said Monday that Miyuki Harwood blew a whistle signaling her location to searchers in the wilderness.

She had become separated from fellow hikers and slipped on a rock, breaking her left leg. Vinogradoff says she described crawling for more than two days to lifesaving water in a stream.

She said she decided to find water rather than dying where she fell.

Vinogradoff says Harwood had warm clothing that got her through nighttime temperatures that hit freezing.
