Diaz never saw her rescuers face-to-face until this week. She calls them her "angels" because they gave her a second chance at life.
"Sometimes it's surreal to me you know to think that I was dead when they found me. I mean had no life signs at all and to think they were able to save me and get me to safety."
Retired firefighter Darrel Shoop was one of the first-responders on the scene.
"A few calls remain with you. Some of them you forget about. This is one of the calls that I will remember for probably the rest of my life."
Diaz also returned to the spot of the crash. She's currently lives in Arizona and is writing a book about her experience.
