Transcript for Texas woman survives 5 days stranded in desert near Grand Canyon
Finally tonight, America strong. Lost in the grand canyon, and out of gas, but refusing to give up. Here's ABC's Linzie Janis. Reporter: 24-year-old amber Vanhecke was on one of her treasured outdoor adventures near the grand canyon. I want to go out and do something exciting. Reporter: That excitement turned to terror when her gps app led her to the middle of nowhere. Am I going to die out here? Please help me, and then just screaming. Reporter: But she refused to give up, using skills she learned as a girl scout. I had rationed my food and water. Reporter: She made a series of sign. This one, using rocks to spell out, help. Then she recorded what she thought would be her last words. I'm really scared. Please help me. Reporter: On day five, she hiked 11 miles to find a cell signal. Finally, she reached 911. A helicopter rescue team swooping in after. I felt like I had a lot to finish, and I wasn't going to give up on that. We thank Linzie for that report. I'm Tom llamas. Have a good evening. Good night.
