YOSEMITE -- A Yosemite National Park employee who spent three days stranded in the wilderness got some good news after extensive back surgery: Doctors say it's likely Jessica Rose Garcia will walk again.
"She's able to move her legs," Darlene Cunningham, Garcia's aunt, said Monday morning. "She's getting better."
Garcia was scheduled to be moved out of intensive care Monday at the Fresno hospital where she's been cared for since her rescue Oct. 9. Garcia, 23, went for a walk Oct. 6 after moving to the Wawona area of Yosemite National Park, where she had landed a job at a hotel.
