A woman who sat bloodied and trapped in her car for two days after it plunged off the side of a mountain in Utah was found alive by a couple who heard her screaming for help and found her car buried in thick brush, NBC News reported.
Heather Blackwelder, a 29 mother of two, is at a Provo hospital in stable condition with some broken bones, officials said. But she would have been a lot worse off – or even dead – if the couple hadn't been out sightseeing on Thursday.
"Somebody going by, driving by, riding by on a motorcycle, riding by even on a bicycle — would have been very little chance of them to hear her, and almost zero chance for them to see her," said Utah County Sheriff's Office spokesman Spencer Cannon.
