NZ runner who got lost drank breast milk 'for energy'

A woman in New Zealand got lost in the countryside near Wellington and spent the night outside, drinking her own breast milk "for energy".

Susan O'Brien said she "definitely thought I was going to die".

She got lost during a trail run she was competing in, she did not arrive at the finishing line and was then missing for almost 24 hours.

As well as drinking her milk she also dug a hole and covered herself in dirt to try and keep warm.
