Hiker passes out in remote New Guinea and then the witch doctor showed up

Debra Paver had seizures and fell into a coma while hiking in a remote area of New Guinea. "While she clung to life, a woman witch doctor brandishing a machete watched over her." Lucky for Paver, the US Navy was in the area and managed to airlift her to the USNS Mercy, where she was nursed back to health. Cinematic story, told at these sites.
