He had no food but still survived?

Did he take up all 4 of his car seats before hand?

The papers here in Sweden say his life had gone downhill lately, evicted from his house, girlfriend leaving him and a mountain of debts piling up, so think his mental health wasn't that good.
Think he just didn't care, it wasn't that far away to a main road and rescue if he wanted.
A professor, when asked about this, said that if you enter a state of hibernation like he did you can last up to 60 days without food, so he was found in the last minute it seems.
Police and medical staff involved see no reason to doubt that he really has been in the car since december so...

He must be a member of the A team.

If that was the case, then he would of turned his car into a tank, utilising his seat frames and making a welder from the cigar lighter.

With out getting out.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.

Waiting a bit after the event have proven a lot of explaination about this case.

- The man was there a couple of months before the 2 months. Some stores' clerks from nearby shops (near as close... not next door) have seen him shopping for food before the 2 months. He was telling everyone that he was camping in the forest.
- He was fleeing his depts and tried to stay hidden from authorities. That's the reason why nobody noticed that he was away. He stopped any contact to not be found.
- He had nothing left. His appartment was taken from him. He took his car to flee and stay low.
- As he was "living" in his car, he was using credit cards until they stopped working. (Note that even if you got nothing, credit card are available as long as you don't reach its limit)
- The reason why he actually never "came out" was because he knew that he couldn't actually ask for help or he would get caught by the police. He was carefull to make sure nobody knew who he was.
- As he was low on fuel, there were a snowstorm which blocked his car, he decided to not move from there and waited so that he could free himself from the snow. But the result was that snowstorm was too heavy and long and the car was in a jam. He then decided to wait in as he had nothing he could do without any risk of getting caught. His choice was a bad one and so, he started to get weak.

His "2 month without food" was actually 2 months where he couldn't buy food. He did eat during that time, thought only small portion of what he had bought before getting stuck.
He was able to do his "things" outside of the car and could come out of it during the 2 months. It was later that he was too weak to even move out of the car and had to eat only snow.

He could have been hiding from the taxman or an angry girlfriend or similar.
And why didn't he try to find a safer way to do it?? :lol:
