LUEDENSCHEID - It was all a terrible mistake, but good testimony to her physical fitness: A German woman walked 100 kilometres home after she thought her husband had stranded her at a highway rest stop.

Police in the central German city of Luedenscheid said Tuesday that the woman, returning to the family car at a highway rest stop, failed to find her husband or car. She thought her husband had simply left her there.

So she walked 100 kilometres back home, a trek lasting some 15 hours. In the meantime, the husband and son had alerted police, who were just about to start searching for her with a helicopter when she showed up.

And it was all a mistake: The woman's husband was simply off helping another motorist repair his car at another part of the highway rest stop, explaining why the wife had failed to find him.
