Two sisters, age 8 and 5, spent 44 hours lost in the woods in Humboldt County, California before they were rescued on Sunday. They had simply gone on a walk from their Northern California house Friday afternoon, but soon realized they couldn't find their way back home. They were found at 10:30am Sunday morning less than two miles from their house, according to CNN. This is their first interview, in which the smart, resourceful girls talk about how they survived.
