A Swedish man has shocked the world by surviving in a snow wrecked car for two months without having any food.
The 45-year-old from southern Sweden was found on Friday by snowmobilers who thought they had come across a car wreck until they dug their way to a window and saw movement inside.
Man, this guy has given a new meaning for the word Human Survival. Experts suggest that he might have survived with the melting snow.
Do you know? Humans can survive without food for four weeks, but this guy is an exception. Maybe, he was protected by the good lord for his own reasons
“Just incredible that he’s alive considering that he had no food, but also since it’s been really cold for some time after Christmas,” a rescue team member told regional daily Vasterbottens-Kuriren, which broke the news.
Ebbe Nyberg, duty officer at the Umea police, said police saw no reason to doubt that the man had been stuck in the car for a very long time.
“We would not make something like this up. The rescue services were on site too and saw the same as us,” he told Vasterbotten Courier newspaper
The man was huddled in a sleeping bag on the back seat, Ebbe Nyberg added.
“He was in a very poor state. Poor condition. He said he’d been there for a long time and had survived on a little snow.
“He said himself he hadn’t eaten anything since December,” Mr Nyberg said.
One doctor told the newspaper that the man might have survived so long by going into a kind of hibernation.
Anyway, what happened? How he got trapped? How did he survive? These questions can only be answered by the man who is currently in the hospital for treatment.
