Soda And Oily Water Keeps Grandmother Alive For 2 Days
SEYMOUR, Texas (AP) — A 75-year-old woman has been found alive after crashing her car into a North Texas ravine and surviving for two days on soda and oily water.
Relatives say Wanda Mobley left her home in Brownwood, Texas, on Friday, headed for McAlester, Oklahoma. They filed a missing person report when she failed to arrive at her destination.
Family members located Mobley near Seymour early Sunday, after investigators told them that her cellphone last pinged in that area. Seymour is 160 miles northwest of Dallas.
Mobley says she survived on Sprite and oily water that dripped from her car.
Mobley was taken to a Wichita Falls hospital to be treated for bruises and a fractured lower back.
