A 68-year-old Fullerton woman remains hospitalized as San Diego County law enforcement personnel continue to marvel at how she survived for two weeks in her disabled car on fruit, pie slices and rainwater.

Dianna Bedwell was found Sunday afternoon in a remote area of northeastern San Diego County in the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation after going missing on Mother’s Day. Her husband, Cecil “Paul” Knutson, died.

Their car had become stuck in the soft dirt of a back-country path.
