A woman has been found on a rock in the sea with no memory of who she is.
She was first spotted, covered in blood, waving at a fisherman from the rock.
He then called for help, and a team of 14 people used 4x4s and walked two miles across jagged rocks on the isle of Krk in Croatia to rescue her.
The woman – believed to be in her 60s – was covered in blood and had no idea how she came to be on the rock.
She had no passport, papers, or phone and was reportedly dehydrated and emaciated.
Experts say she had managed to survive several nights, despite terrifying wildlife, including bears, prowling the island.
Officials said she was so weak she could barely take a sip of water.
It is said the woman speaks English “like a professor”, although she cannot remember her own name.
One person told 24Sata, a local news site: “It’s weird that she was looking in the area at all.
“It is an extremely inaccessible part of the bay with terribly sharp rocks – literally razors that cut the rubber on your shoes.
“There is no life or animals except maybe wild boars or bears which know how to swim to here in search of food, but this is a rarity because there is no food, nothing.
“A woman that age certainly could not swim that distance, it needs exceptional strength.”

She has been described as being 5ft 4in with shoulder-length blonde hair.
Back in 2005, a man named “The Piano Man” was found on Sheppey in Kent wearing a wet suit and tie. He remained silent for weeks and was placed into a care home where he drew a Grand Piano.
It later transpired that the man was a farmer’s son, named Andreas Grassl.
He was 27 and from Bavaria in Germany, where he was later taken.
The woman is now in hospital receiving treatment.
