In central Florida an eleven year old girl woke up in her own bed this morning and that's reason to celebrate, that's because she had actually vanished into an alligator1 infested2 swamp area on Friday only to be found yesterday alive and well, it's an incredible story. Now David Mattingly is here to tell us all about it, she's lucky.

Absolutely, you just don't hear stories turning out like this, this way very often, because this little girl was gone for almost four days no food no water, and after four days the odds3 of finding someone in good health, a relatively4 good health, or even alive start to fall off very quickly, but this little girl had a very big stroke of luck thanks to one particular rescuer.

 

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

MATTINGLY (voice-over): Her tiny hand waving from the stretcher was Nadia Bloom's way of telling everyone she was OK. It was an amazing end to a three-and-a-half-day search in which the 11-year-old seemed to vanish without a trace until a remarkable5 911 call from her rescuer's phone.

NADIA BLOOM, RESCUED IN SWAMP: Hi, this is Nadia. And I'm the girl who got lost.

OPERATOR: OK. Nadia, are you OK? You're not hurt in any way?

MATTINGLY: This mildly autistic Nadia was dehydrated, hungry, barefooted, and covered with insect bites.

Volunteer James King says he was calling on his fate when he found her.

JAMES KING, FOUND MISSING GIRL: Speaking scriptures6 and yelling, Nadia! Then I heard, What? I said, That way, right there.

MATTINGLY: It was in one of densest7, muddiest part of a swamp near Nadia's central Florida home.

At first, the 911 operator couldn't believe it.

KING: I'm almost right in the middle of the swamp.

OPERATOR: Sir, you're in contact with her?

KING: I'm holding her right now, yes. She's OK. She's got bites all over her. She's got some scratches.

MATTINGLY: Working alone, King was able to do what scores of trained officers, divers8 and a specially-equipped helicopter could not. After spending four nights in the snake-infested thicket9, Nadia told the 911 operator she was doing some praying of her own.
