”Humans can do that.” 

Monday, February 20th, 2012

A man in Sweden may have survived almost two months trapped in his car, buried in deep snow, with little to no food. How did he do it?

One doctor, Stefan Branth, said Skyllberg may have survived by going into hibernation mode. “A bit like a bear that hibernates. Humans can do that. He probably had a body temperature of around 31C which the body adjusted to. Due to the low temperature, not much energy was used up.”

I’m…not sure that’s true.
