A Hawaiian woman named Amanda Eller stumbled into her own version of Survivor on May 8, and luckily lived to talk about it. Eller had gone for a short forest hike on the island of Maui, but when she briefly left the path to rest, she got turned around. She went deeper and deeper into the forest, and fractured her leg when she fell off a cliff.
“I heard this voice that said: ‘If you want to live, keep going,’” she told The New York Times. “And as soon as I would doubt my intuition and try to go another way than where it was telling me, something would stop me, a branch would fall on me, I’d stub my toe or I’d trip. So I was like, ‘OK, there is only one way to go.’”
