PG&E-FUNDED CAMERAS HELP RESCUE STRANDED WOMAN DAYS AFTER SHE GIVES BIRTH IN BUTTE COUNTY FOREST
A pregnant woman reportedly went into labor while driving on the outskirts of Oroville after she became lost and her car ran out of gas. Stranded on the side of the road in the Plumas National Forest in Butte County, she described to a local TV station how she gave birth to her daughter in the car and survived three days on bottled water and fruit. Then, she made a fire. PG&E-funded cameras meant to detect wildfires noticed the woman, setting off a chain of events that would eventually lead to her helicopter rescue.
