Miracle survival

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540...29367#39829367

Slightly off topic... but my cousin is a biker--he rides a 'Friday'--, so that makes it legit... My cousin's daughter is a student at the University of Colorado. Look at the clip above--that was on the TODAY show on Monday. She fell off a cliff and is lucky to be alive. When you see the clip it is amazing she is recovering so well. It is nice to see a positive survival story-- makes you feel good inside-- sort of like the Chilean miners, but this one was close to home.

That's an incredible story! "Someone" was looking out for her.

Wow. That is one positive young lady!

I can relate to her wishing she could remember the fall. I feel that way about my accident, though I might not like it so much if I actually did remember.
