This story is really hard to believe, but it is shown on National Geographic, so maybe it isn't a bowl of fudge after all.
As for the woman, she has my last name. If you web search it, you'd see just about all of them are pretty crazy people.
Why are they in Getty Images as well? That seems to make this story a little more true. Edit to add: Oh, I see why. They wrote a book about it back in the 70s also.
