Swedish Man Trapped in Icy Car Survives on Snow for Two Months

A Swedish man survived for two months in freezing conditions after his car became trapped in a snow drift.

Peter Skyllberg was pulled out of his icy vehicle in Umea, Sweden, barely alive after spending eight weeks eating nothing but handfuls of snow in temperatures of -30C.

Experts believe that the 44-year-old may have gone into a type of human hibernation to slow down his metabolism, helping him to survive the ordeal.

Although emaciated and suffering from hypothermia, Mr. Skyllberg appears to be on the road to recovery.

Maybe next time he'll listen to his wife and ask for directions.
