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."
