US hiker survives six days without food

A woman missing for six nights in the Montana wilderness with nothing but her dog and a sweater was found by search crews. Madeline Connelly, a 23-year-old from Chicago, and her dog Mogie had been missing in the Great Bear Wilderness area near Glacier National Park.
Apart from being hungry and tired, she was not injured and asked rescuers if she could hike back with them.

She was airlifted to a nearby hospital and has been reunited with her family. Her family said that she is an experienced hiker, and that they knew she would eventually be found safe. Ms Connelly said that she survived by drinking from streams and sleeping among dense trees.
