Man Survives Two Months In Snowbound Car [VIDEO]
Most of us have heard the advice to keep a couple of granola bars and some bottled water in the car, in case bad weather "traps us" somewhere. But who'd thnk to be ready for a two month ordeal in a snow-covered car?
That's what Swedish motorist Peter Skyllberg survived. Here's the incredible story:
Dr. Ulf Segerberg, Chief Medical Officer for a major Swedish hospital, noted that lack of food wasn't Skyllberg's biggest worry. "Starvation for one month, anyone can tolerate that if they have water to drink. If you have body fat, you will survive even longer..." Details remain sketchy, but it's believed Skyllberg drank melted snow to stay hydrated.
Although Dr. Segerberg called the incident "a case in a lifetime", Peter Skyllberg, who was found Sunday, could be released from a hospital as soon as the end of this week. He's refused all requests for interviews, saying only that he wants everryone to know that he's getting better.
