A teenage girl who had been lost in the Russian Arctic for more than two weeks was recently rescued. Experts hailed her survival as a miracle. The Russian Arctic is one of the world’s most dangerous regions, with wandering ferocious animals such as brown bears and polar wolves. 15-year-old Svetlana Evai, who is from a nomadic reindeer-herding family, left summer camp and hit the road to visit her brother. After a few minutes, she got lost and disoriented. Three days later, a rescue team was sent out, and it took them 12 days to find Evai. When they found her, she was in a grave condition and was promptly taken to a hospital. Eldar Faradjev, the chief doctor at Tazovsky Central Hospital, said, “Her blood pressure and heartbeat are stable, and there is no threat to her life.” It is said that she survived on wild cranberries, currants, and cloudberries. Vitaly Pavlyuchkov, who headed the search mission, said, “It helped that there was a lot of water in the tundra, so she had no problem drinking.”
