75. SOS

When a light passenger plane flew off course some time ago, it crashed in the mountains and its pilot was killed. The only passengers, a young women and her two baby daughters, were unhurt. It was the middle of winter. Snow lay thick on the ground. The woman knew that the nearest village was miles away. When it grew dark, she turned a suit-case into a bed and put the children inside it, covering them with all the clothes she could find. During the night, it got terribly cold. The woman kept as near as she could to the children and even tried to get into the case herself, but it was too small. Early next morning, she heard planet passing overhead and wondered how she could send a signal. Then she had an idea. She stamped out the letters ‘SOS’ in the snow. Fortunately, a pilot saw the signal and sent a message by radio to the nearest town. It was not long before a helicopter arrived on the scene to rescue the survivors of the plane crash.
Ketika sebuah pesawat penumpang cahaya terbang saja beberapa waktu lalu, jatuh di pegunungan dan pilot tewas. Satu-satunya penumpang, seorang wanita muda dan dua anak perempuan bayinya, yang terluka. Itu pertengahan musim dingin. Salju berbaring tebal di tanah. Wanita itu tahu bahwa desa terdekat adalah mil jauhnya. Ketika hari mulai gelap, ia berbalik baju-kasus ke tempat tidur dan menempatkan anak-anak di dalamnya, meliputi mereka dengan semua pakaian yang bisa menemukan. Selama malam, itu mendapat sangat dingin. Wanita itu terus sedekat yang dia bisa untuk anak-anak dan bahkan mencoba untuk masuk ke kasus dirinya, tapi itu terlalu kecil. Pagi berikutnya, ia mendengar planet melintas di atas kepala dan bertanya-tanya bagaimana dia bisa mengirim sinyal. Lalu ia punya ide. Dia dicap huruf ‘SOS’ di salju. Untungnya, pilot melihat sinyal dan mengirim pesan melalui radio ke kota terdekat. Itu tidak lama sebelum helikopter tiba di tempat kejadian untuk menyelamatkan korban yang selamat dari kecelakaan pesawat.
