Angela Hernandez does not remember much about the accident - plummeting down an oceanside cliff in central California. She does not remember hitting her head, fracturing ribs and her collar bone or losing air from one of her lungs. But the 23-year-old from Portland, Oregon, does remember waking up trapped in her SUV in the Pacific Ocean and the seven long days that she fought to survive.

It was 3 a.m. and Samantha Whitney Jones' 11-week-old son was crying. So, Jones did what many mothers would do: She sat down and tried to breastfeed him.
