Survival story of Topsham teen stuck in ravine to be told on TV

PORTLAND, Maine — The story of a Maine teenager who spent two-days trapped in her car in a ravine is going to be featured on a national television show.

The Learning Channel plans to air a documentary titled “My Kid Survived,” which will include the story of Kourtney Thibeault of Topsham.

In November 2009, Thibeault was on her way home when she swerved to avoid a deer and ended up in a ravine. She was bleeding, had several bones broken and was unable to get out or reach her cell phone.

Her family feared she was a victim of a crime.

She was found when Tophsam Police officer Troy Garrison spotted a tire track heading off Route 196.

Thibeault’s mother Katherine tells the Portland Press Herald her daughter remains thankful and hardworking.
