Russians saved after three months


news.bbc.co.uk

Another supreme example of how, as a collective group, we can find the strength and the will power to survive through almost anything. As long as you set your mind to a target, you can and will overcome almost all diversity.

We have much to ponder in our recent times, but all of our current problems are no way near what these people have recently endured.

Perhaps some of you are sitting there thinking "oh my, how did they do that, I never could".. well until that time comes (if ever) you'll at least have the knowledge that others have and do survive against all odds.

Here is one of the most major examples of this scenario that shocked the world.

Friday, October 13, 1972, A Fairchild FH-227 twin turboprop airplane crosses the Andes Mountains carrying 40 passengers and 5 crew. The plane would disappear from the modern world and everyone on board thought to be dead, but 72 days later, 16 would emerge alive and tell their story...

And look at the effort the world goes to to save others lost almost anywhere..

PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY (Russia), Aug 7: Seven Russian sailors trapped for three days on the ocean floor in a small submarine off Russia's Pacific coast were retrieved alive and well on Sunday after a British undersea robot cut the vessel free of debris, Russian naval officials said.

"The submarine resurfaced and the seven submariners are alive," Russian navy spokesman Igor Dygalo said. "They emerged by themselves, transferred to a motor-launch and will be placed aboard a ship where they will receive medical treatment," Dygalo was quoted by news agencies as saying.
