Man Survives 2-Months in Snow-In Car?


STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Swedish man was dug out alive after being snowed in to his car on a forest track for two months with no food, police and local media reported on Saturday.

With no food?! For two months?! In the cold?! We’re calling hoax. Impossible!

The 45-year-old from southern Sweden was found Friday, emaciated and too weak to utter more than a few words.

He was found not far from the city of Umea in the north of Sweden by snowmobilers who thought they had come across a car wreck until they dug their way to a window and saw movement inside.

The man, who was laying in the back seat in a sleeping bag, said he had been in the car since December 19.
