After seven days of falling into a cliff in Yen Tu, Nguyen Thi Bich Lien, 59, ate a fern, rummaged through trash to find excess water in plastic bottles to drink.
So what is the effect of the fern?

Talking to reporters, Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong, director of the Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that ferns are a basic non-toxic plant, possibly based on this factor to choose this plant to eat.
“To survive after 7 days, besides energy, the most important thing is water.
Fasting from a few weeks to a month is normal, but fasting only for a few days. In Yen Tu just now, if she knows how to eat ferns and drink water, the most important thing here is that she can withstand the cold. Because theoretically, if the body is hungry and loses heat, especially in the elderly, the risk of death is very high, “said Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong.
With many years of experience in the forest looking for medicinal plants, Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong said that in the forest there are many dangers: snakes, sudden floods, falling trees, falling, rolling stones, eating poisonous plants, being injured. cold, hungry, thirsty..
Therefore, if unfortunately, get lost, or fall in the forest, Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong shared his experience that now the victim must really calm down and follow the stream (in order to have drinking water, they will descend to a safe place. whole, have people, have villages,…).
As for the leaves of trees in the forest that can be eaten, Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong shared, basically the poisonous plants are very little, the amount of poison is usually not enough to cause death, so you can nibble on the leaves.
“A sour plant is never poisonous. Ferns are also rarely poisonous (only they are a bit tough and fibrous). Or finding a forest banana tree is a very good solution: get water from the stem, eat the young stem, eat the tuber”, said Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong.
In addition, people in distress can find water by getting water from banana trees, ropes, forks (if there is a knife), biting roots, etc.
A rule to ensure safety when going to the forest should go in groups or groups. If you are unfortunate enough to get lost, you should sit still and wait for someone to come and rescue you. The more wandering around, the easier it is to get lost and away from the starting point, then people are hard to find.
“In case there is a fire, it is necessary to light a fire, especially in the evening to keep the body warm while chasing the animals and easy for people to detect,” said Dr. Ngo Duc Phuong.

Ms. Lien said, on April 27, she alone took a bus from Hanoi to Ha Long to get medicine, then went to Yen Tu to worship Buddha at Dong Pagoda. This is also her first time going to Yen Tu. When she went down, she had low blood pressure, so she sat down near the temple railing. When she stood up to continue, she was stunned and fell into the abyss about 30m deep.
Calling for help but no one heard, the phone fell while falling, Mrs. Lien tried to climb up but fell down again. Because she was wearing a raincoat and had a tree to support her, she was not injured.
To endure, she ate rice cakes and burnt rice available in her carry-on bag, only breaking a small piece to eat each day. In addition, she eats the leaves of the ferns around, the water is dug in the garbage and the water bottles thrown by tourists.
