WOODBURY - The Setauket doctor who spent four days lost in the wilderness last week was dehydrated, disoriented, and slipping in and out of consciousness before he was rescued. Dr. Jerome Nadler went missing at Caleb Smith State Park in Smithtown on Labor Day, setting off a large search effort. A Suffolk police dog is credited with sniffing out Nadler's scent, tracking him down and saving his life. In a phone interview with News 12 Long Island, Nadler's wife, Nancy, says her husband had tremendous survival skills and the will to live. It's what she credits for him making it out of the marshy woods alive, despite being stranded with just two diet sodas. Nancy Nadler says her husband doesn't remember much about the four days he was lost. She says he recalls going fishing and remembers being rescued, but he doesn't remember anything in between, except cupping his hands to catch rain water.Missing fisher found alive, covered in bug bites after 4 daysSetauket doctor thanks police who saved his life
