A group out looking for a Christmas tree averted a tragedy when they chanced upon an alleged kidnapping victim in Lassen National Forest. According to reports, the victim, a 25-year-old woman whose identity has not been disclosed, was found half-naked and badly injured. In fact, she appeared to have been beaten and left for dead.

Covering an area of 1,700 square miles in northeastern California, Lassen National Forest extends into five counties. The victim was found on Monday November 27, 2017, in a woodland near Hat Creek, east of Eskimo Hill in Shasta County (as its name suggests, the hill is snow-capped during winter).

“It is expected that a person could not survive in that area in the condition [the victim] was in,” reads a police report of the incident. “[She] said she thought she may die in the wilderness if not rescued.” Indeed, it seems her survival and rescue were something of a Christmas miracle.
