Girl is found two days after boat accident

June 16, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

A 5-year-old who was feared drowned Wednesday with her grandfather on a boating trip startled searchers Friday when she emerged from the woods -- naked, scratched and holding raspberries.

Searchers had pulled her grandfather's body from the Kankakee River near Momence hours earlier.

When authorities told Hannah Klamecki's family -- already grieving the loss of her grandfather -- that she was alive, they erupted in screams.

Hannah had scratches on her face and body. She also had poison ivy rashes on her legs, and thorns had cut her feet.
