Man survives two months trapped in frozen car
Posted by Sherwin
Imagine being trapped inside a snow-covered vehicle for two months without food or water and little hope of survival because no one has any idea where the hell you are. That is exactly what happened to a 45-year-old man from Sweden who was rescued by snowmobilers on Friday.
“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,” said a rescue team member.
The man, who is now recovering in a hospital in Umea, said he had been in the car (not pictured above) since December 19. According to doctors, the guy managed to survive by eating snow and going into a dormant-like state inside his sleeping bag.
“A bit like a bear that hibernates. Humans can do that,” physician Stefan Branth said. “He probably had a body temperature of around 31 degrees (Celsius) which the body adjusted to. Due to the low temperature, not much energy was used up.”
Exactly how the man got trapped and why he was at a deserted forest road to begin with are unknown.
