‘Miracle’ Walk to Safety

Source: ABC News:

For a young girl to be able to walk away from a plane crash that killed everyone else on board, and then make her way through rough, densely wooded terrain at night to find help is being called an incredible miracle.

Medical experts say the 7-year-old was likely driven by adrenaline.

“This is what we call the fight or flight response,” said ABC News Senior Medical Contributor Dr. Jennifer Ashton. “That adrenaline, that hormone, clearly there’s an element of emotional shock as well as physical shock but if she’s able to survive the initial impact without a head injury, and then she’s just talking about a five – to 15-minute walk through the dark in a very scary situation, it’s incredible.”
