(CNN) – Rescuers carried an 11-year-old girl out of dense, swampy forest in Florida on Tuesday, four days after she disappeared.
The team, carrying Nadia Bloom in a cloth stretcher, trudged through brush for nearly two hours to bring her out of the area near Lake Jesup, northeast of Orlando, Florida, said Chief Kevin P. Brunelle of the Winter Springs Police Department.
He said that Nadia, who has been described as mildly autistic, was found shoeless and covered in insect bites. She was otherwise in good condition.
"She was not complaining of anything other than the fact that she had insect bites," Brunelle said.
"She did make two comments to the officers when they got there: 'Glad you guys found me, can't believe you rescued me,' " he said. FULL STORY
