Eight years ago, the media became aware of the story of 4-year-old Karina Chekitova, who got lost in the taiga and spent more than 10 days there. The girl’s life remained intact only thanks to a dog named Naida.
Karina lives with her family 600 kilometers from Yakutia, but at some point she went with her mother to visit her grandmother. Grandma lived in a small village near the taiga.
When the girl’s mother and grandmother went to mow the grass, they left her with her father. When Karina returned, she was not at home, and everyone thought that dad had taken the little one with him.
Three days later, it turned out that Karina was not with her father at all, and then the family rang the bells. The detachments immediately went in search of the cub. Every 9 days they wandered around the taiga, but there were no results.
It seemed that there was no hope, but the dog Naida unexpectedly came to the village where the family lived, which, as it turned out, was with the girl. It is thanks to her that little Karina was finally found.
Now the lost girl is 12 years old. She loves ballet professionally and grows up as a very talented girl. In addition, she often goes to her grandmother, who still lives with this same rescue dog.
