In case you missed the pretty incredible story of Rita Chretien, the Canadian woman who survived for 49 days stranded in the northeastern Nevada wilderness -- and was just discovered Friday. From the Guardian:
Left on her own in the van, Rita survived on water from a nearby creek, and trail mix which she ate sparingly over the 49 days before she was discovered. She was severely malnourished when she was found by hunters on all-terrain vehicles and was unable to keep down the food they gave her.
Her husband is still missing.
