A man survives being trapped in a snow covered car on an isolated road for over two months.
Do miracles happen?
Yes they do. In Sweden a man was found alive after being trapped in his car for two whole months.
The man was discovered on a forest track and only a kilometre from a main road in north Sweden. His car was buried underneath snow.
Temperatures in the area have been a chilling -30 degrees centigrade.
Police believe the man, who survived being trapped in his vehicle since mid December, 2011, by drinking melted snow. He had no food whatsoever.
The unnamed man, aged 45, is now under recovery at Umea University Hospital in Sweden and is making a slow recovery. His survival has completely baffled health officials and scientists.
The rescue of the man was completely by chance when snowmobilers stumbled across the man’s snow covered vehicle and believed it to be a wreck. However, the group were astonished to discover movement inside the vehicle when clearing snow from the windows.
According to reports, the man was huddled in a sleeping bag on the back seat of the car. He was in a very poor condition and claims he was there since December 19th, 2011. He claims he had not eaten since that day.
Scientists believe that the man must have survived purely by going into a form of hibernation.
