A elderly man trapped, since Hurricane Katrina, has been found in New Orleans in remarkably good shape. Gerald Martin, 76, walked out of his house Friday with little help despite having only a gallon and a-half of water and no food for 18 days of which 16 he spent in the his attic.
Day after day, for more than two weeks, the 76-year-old man sat trapped and alone in his attic, sipping from a dwindling supply of water until it ran out. No food. No way out of a house ringed by foul floodwaters.

Without ever leaving home, Gerald Martin lived out one of the most remarkable survival stories of Hurricane Katrina. Rescuers who found him Friday, as they searched his neighborhood by boat, were astounded at his good spirits and resiliency after 18 days without food or human contact.

Amazing constitution Gerald has to survive so long with no food!
