Man survives on urine and plants

A 65-year-old head of a university in Colombia survived four days on only his urine and a few plant stems.

Wood duck

While attempting to capture photos of the brightly coloured wood duck the man ventured off track in search for a dried up pond he found himself lost in a swamp.

Following the rules of being lost he stayed on the same island("a log and raised mud about 3 meters long") for his entire ordeal.

On the final day after surviving on urine and plant stems he was discovered by a police helicopter and made  a remarkably quick recovery.

  4. I don't think I'd ever be able to drink my own piss no matter the situation. I'm glad he was able to get out alive!

  9. Very cool story, and good that he thought to stay where he was instead of venturing out further and getting lost even moreso.

  18. Wow, that guy's pretty determined to stay alive.

    That said, if given a choice between drinking pee and dying, I think the former would come out on top...

  20. So urine and plants aren't the only things there are to drink and eat? Why has no one told me this before.

  21. I always read that drinking your own urine would dehydrate you in the long run.

  22. Sounds like the story of Aron Ralston, that guy was stuck for 127 hours under a rock (his arm to be precise), after he could not take anymore, he cut his arm off with a DULL knife to escape. There is a movie about his story called 127 Hours, i think you guys should watch it!

  23. This guy has nothing on Aron Ralston, I'm reading Aron's book (Between a Rock and a Hard Place) and if he was 'lost in a swamp' he'd find a way out with-in the hour.

  24. damn. He knew what he was doing...

  25. Hmmm.. 4 days? I think you can survive without water completely for 4 days, though it would be painful. I think he was just looking for an excuse to drink his own urine! =P
