The details of her story are still coming out, but I think Pamela Salant may be one of the toughest or luckiest women alive.
The 28-year-old was hiking in Mount Hood National Forest when she fell off a 50-foot cliff, seriously injuring her back and breaking her leg in two places, CNN is reporting.
During the three days she waited for rescue, she tied off a deep cut on her leg with her own underwear, tried to eat a few insects, meditated to remain calm, and covered herself with moss for warmth, according to the report. Her boyfriend told CNN she was scared but "determined" to survive.
She is recovering in an Oregon hospital and is expected to share more details about her story next week.
