Woman survives, lost in Qld bush for 17 days

A Queensland mother says her daughter has miraculously survived a 17-day ordeal lost in rugged bushland where she lived on creek water, small fish and insects.   Deidre Sharrock says a farmer found her 30-year-old daughter Shannon Leah Fraser when she stumbled out of the bush.   She was last seen at the Golden Hole swimming spot, south of Cairns, on September 21.   "She's badly burnt, she's lost a lot of weight," Ms Sharrock told News Corp.   "She's got a lot of infected cuts from fighting the scrub. She told us she just sat in a creek for three days to soothe her cuts and burns."   Ms Fraser is in a stable condition in Innisfail Hospital.    Read more at Brisbanetimes.com.au
