Lost fishermen ate friend to survive

Two men lost for months in the Siberian wilderness had to resort to extreme measures to stay alive.

Aleksandr Abdulaev, Aleksey Gorulenko and two other men had been on a trip to a remote Siberian river during the region's warm season, but run in to trouble later when they had to return on foot through the forests after heavy snow. Abdulaev and Gorulenko were finally rescued after more than four months of wandering in the wilderness, however the fate of the other two men would go on to become a matter of some debate.

When rescuers found the remains of one of the missing men they discovered that the body had been stripped of a lot of its flesh and that someone had cut in to it with a sharp tool. Abdulaev later confessed that they had resorted to eating their dead comrade in an effort to stay alive but insisted that he had already died from the cold beforehand.

"One of two men who survived four months of wandering in Siberian Taiga has confessed that the pair ate an unlucky friend who died from the cold."

The thing is...dont humans 'go off' pretty quick? Id have thought unless kept chilled they'd be absolutely stinking after a few hours, all the gasses inside bloating them up too... Mind you Ive often wondered if clowns taste funny...

If they did murder him to stay alive, I think it's time to start talking about banning fishermen.

Mind you Ive often wondered if clowns taste funny... it was -22 when they found the 2 survivors, so I doubt keeping their pals chilled would have been a problem...its Siberia and freezing there, even Hitler would not have been able to......................oh wait!

Another example of survival,with similarities,is the one of the survivors of a plane crash in,I think it was 1972,in the Andes.Many of the survivors perished in the extreme cold waiting to be rescued.The remaining survivors were faced with the dilemma of moral & ethical proportions.They were facing death through starvation.They were forced to accept that the only food available was the flesh of the other deceased members of the doomed flight.They were finally rescued months after the crash.Later,officials of the catholic church announced that,according to church doctrines,they had committe...

i first read the book, Alive, then saw the movie i thought it was an incredible story of survival and the human condition. it was while reading the story that i realized that i too would have done the same. I'd have started during the descent.

I reckon if I met two hungry cannibals in the forest, Id just try my best to keep calm - and try not to get in a stew.
