(PCM) In this amazing rescue story two sister, 52-year old Leslie Roy and 56-year old Lee Wright, were able to survive 13 days trapped in their 2010 Ford Explorer which became stuck in the snow on a remote road in Michigan’s Upper peninsula by eating Girl Scout Cookies and cheese puffs.
In a detailed account of their ordeal police in Michigan say that the women huddled together in the car, wearing multiple layers of clothing until the car battery eventually died. They were able to make eight boxes of Girl Scout cookies and cheese puffs last throughout their entrapment and used snow for water. The women also claimed that they were also approached by a bear twice.
The sisters were rescued after a Michigan State police helicopter was circling the area and caught the glimmer of their SUV’s windshield. The chopper circled several times before discovering the vehicle under some trees and the women hopped out of the vehicle and began waving and trying to start a signal fire.
The helicopter was eventually able to land on nearby beach a few miles away and rescuers were able to hike to the women and bring them to safety.
