lucky to be alive: December 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg An Alaskan man who crashed his truck and got stuck in a snowdrift survived his three day ordeal thanks to frozen cans of beer.

Clifton Vial had been driving in the remote area outside of the town of Nome when he crashed and his car became stuck.

With temperatures dropping as low as -28C he used a sleeping bag to keep warm and occasionally started the engine of his truck to turn on the heater.

But with no food in his vehicle, it wasn't looking good for Vial -- until he realised he had a few cans of Coors Light with him.

He used a knife to cut off the lids and then proceeded to eat the frozen brew, which it says is best served chilled.
