Maria goes for a walk every day from her old people’s home. But on Saturday afternoon she slipped and fell and was unable to get up.

Her absence wasn’t noticed until breakfast the following morning.

She says she tried to crawl back to the path and shouted for help. But no one heard her. The police eventually managed to track her mobile phone which was with her bag which she had dropped when she fell.

A police dog soon found Maria after it was given the bag’s scent.

She’s now back home after a hospital check-up.
