A 9-year-old North Carolina girl has survived for two days after she was trapped in a crashed car. Jordan Landon was upside down while she waited to be rescued, and her father – 39-year-old Douglas Landon – was dead next to her.
The girl reportedly survived on Pop Tarts and Gatorade, and was eventually rescued when a passerby noticed the 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in a ditch on Sunday, two days after the accident. Rescuers initially believed Jordan was dead until she managed to make a sound.
The cause of the crash isn’t clear. The vehicle is believed to have run off the road and become airborne in the crash. Bizarrely, Jordan’s mother allegedly crashed her car just 100ft away on Saturday while searching for her missing family members, and while she was fine, rescuers didn’t notice the other crashed car so close.
