Her dog was also with her.

The campsite was in the Three Creeks natural area, near Southeast 82nd Avenue and Southeast Sunnybrook Boulevard.

Seale said the area was normally dry, but the rains had made the creeks in the area flood.

Rescuers worked together to bring a small boat to the spot to rescue Seale and her dog.

Seale did not want to go to a hospital.
