LDS Grandpa Returns Home After Surviving 2 Days in Idaho Wilderness: "It's Truly a Miracle"

After his truck got stuck in a remote part of Idaho where he had no cell reception, no food, and no water, 77-year-old Paul Meiling miraculously made it back to his family just in time for Christmas.

The sign welcoming Paul Meiling home simply read: "A Christmas Miracle."

"(It's) truly, truly a miracle in many ways," Meiling, 77, or "Papa Paul" as he is known to his family, said as he was greeted Wednesday by loved ones who wondered if they would ever see him again.

Meiling himself admitted there were times over the past two days that he also wondered whether he would make it home alive.

"I didn't know if I was going to get out of this or not," he said.
