For four days they hid in the jungle and then they carried her over hills and through paddy fields for 11 days until they reached Bangladesh. For another 11 days she and her family slept on riverbanks and under trees. A few days after she reached the camp she started having trouble breathing, which was exacerbated by the constant rainfall and bad camp conditions.
