LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRAE Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune 1 Wife Survives 20 Days Beside Husband's Body Mrs. LeMasurier Rescued After Incredible Exper- i£nce When Plane Crashes Atop Mountain RAWLINS, Wyo. (UP)—The 45- year-old survivor of a light plane crash, who lived beside her dead husband on a lonely mountain top for 20 days on only three candy bars and melted snow, was reported in good condition today in a Rawlins hospital. Although search planes flew •within iigM of the wreckage several times and a group of sheep herders once camped only two or three miles away, Mrs. Le Ma- surier was not spotted until Thursday. She was sighted by Jack Putnam, foreman of the Buzzard Ranch, who was looking for stray, cows with a pair of binoculars. Searchers After Body A rescue party set out at dawn today to remove Le Masurier's body from the crash scene. Doctors reported the woman •was suffering from exposure but said her condition, "amazingly good," was not considered critical. The couple had been missing since May 11 wiien they took off from Salt Lake City for Rapid City, S.D. When rescuers reached Mrs. Le Masurier she struggled to remain •with her husband's body, they said. She told them she tried frantically to attract the attention of rescue planes but could not. The couple had only two matches and they were wet. When the planes flew nearby "I waved a red shirt trying to get them to see us," she sobbed. Wore Husband's Trousers When found she was barefoot and was wearing her dead husband's trousers. She said all she had to eat during the agonizing 20 days were three candy bars she bought by chance at Salt Lake City. She drank melted snow. Mrs. Le Masurier said she and her husband stayed in the plane's wreckage for the first three days after the crash and then decided to try to get off the mountain. Her husband got only 400 yards before he died. Mrs. Le Masurier was "very coherent" when she was found! and was in "surprisingly good | shape considering what she had been through," according to Robert D. Paul, Carbon County coroner. The woman told rescuers that at one time a group oE sheep, herders came within two or three miles of the wreckage but. that she chose to stay with her husband's body rather than try to get to them. 65 Taken III During Picnic At Monastery Authorities Attribute Food Poisoning to Cheese Made From Goat Milk LIBERTYVILLE, 111.
