Except from the story: "As she waited to be rescued, friends and relatives began to assemble fuel, firewood and white linen to eventually cremate her body."

She went missing all of 36 hours and her family was already of the mindset she had died? It's a shame she survived; at the rate her family got over her loss, dad could be dating again by this weekend.
