Whilst taking an unfamiliar shortcut to her parents’ house, Amber Pangborn became lost in a stretch of Northern Carolina forest – where she later gave birth to her daughter, fought off bees and survived on apples!
35 year old Amber was afraid she would never be found after becoming lost in the middle of the forest with no cellphone service and running out of gas.
To make matters worse, Amber’s baby decided she was ready to enter the world. Amber was forced to give birth to her daughter alone in the forest.
Amber was stung by bees and bitten by mosquitoes whilst trying to defend her newborn, Marisa, from the hungry insects.
After 3 days in the forest, Amber started a fire in attempt to attract help but the flames quickly grew out of control, only making their situation more dangerous.
Fortunately it worked and mother and daughter were discovered by fire investigators. Both Amber and Marisa are doing well.
