Five-year-old Janie Ann Galvin, rescued after wandering away from Paso Picacho Campgrounds in the Cuyamacas, April 17, 1961. She'd followed a squirrel. She fell asleep before dark and awoke in the morning. She didn't try to attract the helicopter that sought her. After searchers found her 24 hours later, she refused hot food but accepted the candy bar she holds in her hand.
