Florida Girl With Asperger's Syndrome Rescued From Swamp

WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. -- An 11-year-old girl with Asperger's syndrome was being treated Tuesday for insect bites and dehydration in a Florida hospital after spending four days in alligator-infested woods and swampland.
Rescuers and other law enforcement officials carried Nadia Bloom out of the woods in a sling more than three hours after rescuer James King called 911 to report he had found her.
King, 44, of Orlando, Fla., was a volunteer searcher who is a member of Metro Church, where the child's family worships.
Nadia was covered in bug bites, her feet were waterlogged, and she was dehydrated, officials said. She was not wearing shoes when she was found, said officials, who described her as being in good condition.
