A man in Sweden has been rescued after being stuck in the snow in his car for a whole two months.

The 45-year-old had become stuck at the end of a remote forest track with no food or supplies and was there for two months before finally being found by snowmobilers who examined the car believing it to be a wreck. It is believed the man survived by drinking melted snow and by entering a dormant-like state. "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 member of the rescue team.

"Doctors at the hospital said humans would normally be able to survive for about four weeks without food."

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... Zam

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... [More]
