(NEW YORK POST) — A woman who drank her own urine to survive three days in the desert after falling down a canyon and smashing her pelvis has shared her amazing story of survival.

Claire Nelson, a budding freelance travel writer from New Zealand, set off on a solo half-day, six-mile hike in California’s Joshua Tree National Park on May 22.

But a wrong turn and a wrong step saw her plunge 20 feet into a stony canyon a few hours into the hike where she remained for three days with just a little water and a mobile phone.
