Rescued hiker recounts 6 harrowing days in the desert

Real estate broker Ed Rosenthal, 64, lost 20 pounds and became so feeble that he could not walk or sit up, even against a rock. He says it's 'definitely a miracle' he's alive.

Ed Rosenthal sipped the last of his water the morning after he lost his way in an isolated canyon deep in Joshua Tree National Park. It tasted sweet and delicious. He carried a pack stuffed with survival equipment — a whistle, matches, flares, even a space blanket — but he brought a large water container that was just an eighth full. He left two huge bottles in his hotel room and passed by a spigot in the park.
