A woman who barely survived a 350-foot plunge down an icy mountainside said she used telepathy to let her husband know she needed help.
Tracy Granger, 56, had to spend a freezing night on the side of a mountain in the Angeles National Forest before she was found.
But as she sat, huddled and badly hurt, she reached out to her husband with her mind, calling for help.
“I sat down and I said out loud, ‘Lee, I’m overdue,’” she told KTLA. “‘Something has happened. Figure it out.’”
Her white 1999 Ford Ranger was spotted early March 26 some 350 feet down the side of a steep, snow-covered embankment on Angeles Forest Hwy at mile marker 10.47.
“As deputies were walking along the ridgeline here, they actually saw a tool box laying down,” said Sgt. Andrew Nagel of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
From the information given in the story, it appears pretty easy to figure out that something went wrong. The clues were all there: bad road conditions and the fact that she didn’t show up on time. An accident wasn’t difficult to imagine. I’m glad Ms. Granger gave credit to the responders because all first responders deserve much praise for their effort. But, it’s pretty silly that the news channel chose to stress the telepathy angle here when that didn’t appear to have a darn thing to do with the situation. When they DO stress the paranormal angles, they make those ideas a bit more acceptable in pop culture.
