A 45 year Old man was found alive after being locked up inside his snowed in car for nearly two months. This had to be the worst experience ever, I’m a private investigator and my days consist of sitting in a vehicle for up to 12 hours at a time. This sitting can be a complete pain in the rear, literally, and I can only imagine what this man went through. The middle aged man was found on Friday in his vehicle parked on a forest track near the town of Umea, according to a report in the local Västerbottens-Kuriren (VK) daily.
It’s unbelievable that this man was found alive, he went missing sometime after Christmas but no body reported him missing. According to the paramedics that found him, it’s actually incredible that he managed to survive that long without any food. No one knows how this man managed to be undiscovered for such a long period of time or how he managed to get stranded.
When he was found, the man had severe problems with his muscles and was having a very difficult time speaking. He was found by a pair of snowmobilers, they accidentally stumbled upon – what appeared to be – an abandoned vehicle. When they started to clear the snow from the windows, they saw that a person was inside the vehicle moving around.
The pair immediately called the emergency services and the police arrived to the scene, the man was rescued and taken to the hospital. The medical staff estimated that the man had been in the vehicle for about two months, which just happens to be the amount of time a human can survive without food. The only reason he managed to stay alive is thanks to his plentiful supply of snow around his vehicle.
The hospital staff still has their doubts, and they should. Doctors say a man can live without oxygen for 3 minutes, water for 3 days, or food for 3 weeks, anything above that is extremely unlikely. Even the people that go out on hunger strikes give in after the 3 week mark. This man managed to survive 2 straight months without a single grain of food, a little unlikely, but the police are closing the case since they don’t have any type of crime.
I know what you’re thinking, what happened when nature called? And really, I’m not sure he had anything for nature to call to. Also, I wonder why he never called for help? Regardless, the man is now healing from his ordeal at the ICU of Umea University Hospital.
