In the March of 2003, Eric LeMarque (a French Olympic hockey team member) decided to go snowboarding in the Sierra Nevada mountains. On April 26, 2004, Aron Ralston decided to go hiking on the Little Blue John Canyon in Nevada. After he amputated his arm, he spent the next six hours hiking until he came across a family.
Clifton Vial was driving about 40 miles outside of Nome, Alaska when his truck became lodged in a drift. Tami’s fiance was swept overboard and her boat broken in half, but Tami was able to make a makeshift mast and sail from whatever was left and plotted a course to Hawaii.
The lesson which we all can get from these amazing tales of survival is that, if you are going on an adventure holiday it is important to make sure you take proper precautions and inform your close ones before setting off for the journey.

In January 2007, Australian diver Eric Nerhus became one of the luckiest people alive after he survived being swallowed head-first by a 10-foot great white shark. Of course, said mission turned into the most terrifying disaster movie this side of the SS Poseidon. Okene ended up bunking in a 4-foot air pocket under the surface, holding back the water as best he could and stacking mattresses as the cold water rose to keep dry. When the company finally got around to sending a recovery team (they had, understandably, been assuming everyone was dead), Okene gave a diver the shock of a lifetime: The second he heard human sounds, he announced his presence by pounding the shit out of a wall with a hammer. After a quick rescue operation and a stint in a decompression chamber, Okene emerged back in the land of the living, as good as new. If there's one thing to be learned from notable documentaries such as Twister and Sharknado, it's that tornadoes are as disastrous as tornado movies are terrible. In 2006, the 19-year-old Missouri native was in his grandmother's trailer home when the weather became rowdy. The astonished agents of the National Weather Service measured the precise distance of his flight at 1,307 feet, which is the longest tornado-aided flight a human being has ever survived, especially with such minor injuries. So while most of us were busy building booger constructs and pissing ourselves at the thought of rides at Six Flags, Ollestad was deep sea fishing and going on jungle safaris to find secret surfing spots.
When it came to pure mad skills, Ollestad was the world's best-equipped child to cope with any bullshit fate could throw at him.
On February 19, 1979, Ollestad -- 11 at the time -- and his father were flying to Big Bear Mountain to retrieve a trophy he had won the day before. Because the trip had been just their family's version of a quick afternoon errand, Ollestad didn't even have a pair of gloves. After nine hours, Norman finally made it down the mountain in surprisingly good condition, immediately inciting a media frenzy. 2 - The Phoenix in George Street underwent numerous managerial changes and when it was put up for sale it looked like it may be converted. 5 - The Leeman on the corner of Livingstone Street and Stamford Street East looked well and truly doomed. I think even the police voted against the demolition of the Lowther as it was famous for it's "lock-ins" due to the proximity of the Cumberland Street nick.

The following five stories are real life survival stories that we should all take heed to because these people have something that many of us don’t – they’ve been there and lived to tell about it. When 56 year old Boyd Severson set out on his hike, he made a few seemingly harmless decisions that could have cost him his life.
Still, all would likely have been well had Boyd trusted his instincts and turned back when his gut told him to. It wasn’t until Boyd reached an unfamiliar draw that he realized he’d zigged instead of zagged somewhere. When darkness fell and snowflakes dropped his visibility to zero, Boyd decided to wedge himself between three crevices and hunker down for the night.
Boyd originally decided to wait where he was because he was sure his wife had initiated a search party but by 1:30pm, he was still waiting.
Sailor had broken bones and lacerations but when she couldn’t wake her father, mother, sister or cousin up after the crash, she pulled herself from the wreckage, lit a stick on the burning wing of the plane and trudged three-quarters of a mile through the cold darkness of the wooded Kentucky countryside.
She made it to the nearest house and knocked on the door, hoping to get help for her family. Though the temperature was below 40 degrees, Sailor was wearing clothing meant for the warm Florida weather and only had on one sock.
The four-person group had made the decision to utilize the window of opportunity that they had to begin their trek even though the McKinley was running high and the weather was crummy. When it came time to cross the McKinley, they lined up like a conga line with Tracy at the rear.
Tracy was in a quandary because she needed her arms to keep her head above water but needed to free herself of her pack.

Zack Branham, an Indiana teacher who works in the coastal town of Kuji just north of Sendai was one of the lucky ones when the tsunami struck Japan. Lifelong backpacker Amy Racina experienced one of a backpacker’s worst nightmares and lived to tell about it. Amy was hiking in the Tehipite Valley, a remote area of Kings Canyon National Park in the Sierra Nevada, due east of Fresno, CA. Amy began dragging herself slowly downstream toward where she believed that the nearest trail was, calling out periodically on the off chance that somebody would hear her. The friend was a former marathon runner with a heart condition and ran 10 miles uphill to find help.
After months of surgeries and painful physical therapy, Amy beat the odds and was back hiking her beloved mountains less than a year later – solo! About the Author Latest PostsAbout Theresa CrouseTheresa Crouse is a full-time writer currently living in central Florida.

Thomas Sobchack, writing in Handbook of American Film Genres, says viewers “can play out potential ways of meeting crises” by identifying with ordinary characters. Director Ang Lee won an Oscar for Best Director for this adaptation of Yann Martel’s 2001 novel about a sixteen-year-old Indian boy, Piscine “Pi” Patel, who is stranded after a shipwreck on a lifeboat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger. Tom Hanks received an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Chuck Noland, a time-obsessed FedEx executive marooned on a South Pacific island after a plane crash. Director Danny Boyle co-wrote this film based on the memoir Between a Rock and a Hard Place by canyoneer Aron Ralston, who amputated his own arm after becoming trapped by a boulder in southeastern Utah. Actor Sean Penn wrote and directed this adaptation of Jon Krakauer’s 1996 nonfiction book about Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch), an idealistic Emory University graduate who opted to live off the grid and in nature as “Alexander Supertramp.” McCandless hitchhiked across North America and camped in a remote area of Alaska before a series of mistakes cost him his life. Director Joe Carnahan co-wrote this adaptation of Ian MacKenzie Jeffers’ short story Ghost Walker, about oil workers facing the Alaskan cold and a pack of wolves after a plane crash.
There is one line from the book that says, “Death is not a single event but a process that may be interrupted or even reversed.” That line is very true because there have been millions of cases where people have defied the odds and survived extreme circumstances. He was forced to spend eight days in the snow caves (he even used his mp3 radio signals as a compass).
It was too cold for him to dig his truck out of the drift, so he was forced to stay inside of truck. However, his plan backfired when one of the men drugged him, took his car and left him outside of an Western Australian outback.
The 41-year-old was fishing for abalone in murky waters near the town of Eden, New South Wales, when the shark attacked.
All of the ingredients were in place: He was young, happy, and gainfully employed as a cook on a Chevron service tugboat. To make things worse, sharks and barracudas soon started roaming the ship's interiors in search of a meal. It states that when you increase atmospheric pressure (say, by sinking 100 feet underwater), gases become denser. Divers all over the world marvel at his tenacity, as those depths can only safely be dived for about 20 minutes at a time. In an attempt to shield himself from the storm, Suter was just standing on the sofa and attempting to close the living room window. This became even clearer when Suter, wearing only his underpants, was sucked out of the trailer through a collapsing wall into the raging darkness beyond. By the time Suter regained consciousness, he was lying four football fields away from the remains of the trailer. Really, the only reason we're not thinking Suter is secretly Superman is the fact that in 1955, a 9-year-old girl also miraculously survived a 1,000-foot tornado ride.
He became a master at everything extreme, from comfortably riding on his father's back while he was surfing at age 1 to effortlessly skiing impossibly difficult slopes at freaking 4. All he had was an impossibly steep mountainside, his father's training, and a primal will to live. But Batemans Brewery bought, refurbished and reopened it, and it has gone on to win several awards in the past 5 years.
When City of York Council granted permission in 2007 for it to to be turned into offices and flats, its time looked to be up.
Punch Taverns wanted to turn it into housing, but amid protests, a council committee rejected the plans by 4 votes to 3 in 2008.
The Lowther in Cumberland Street was all set to be demolished back in 1971, along with four other properties.

We can talk all day about what ifs but when it comes right down to it, nothing replaces the knowledge that you gain from actually going through a disaster or an emergency. First, he decided to set out on alone; hiking partners were impossible to find that day and the day was glorious.
Always carry more clothes than you think you’ll need, listen to your gut, use your GPS and don’t hike alone. Though Sailor Gutzler may have enjoyed those activities, she was also an active participant in outdoor activities with her father.
She told the woman who answered the door that she’d been in a plane crash and that her parents were dead. Their goal was to hike from Wonder Lake to the McKinley River bar, cross a mile-wide band of stream braids, then climb Mt Brooks. Like the rest of the team, Tracy’s pack was stuffed with crampons, a rope, an ice ax and a pair of plastic boots in addition to all of her other gear. Safety protocol is to unbuckle your pack from your body when crossing water but Tracy didn’t feel like she could balance the weight and left her pack buckled. The catastrophic tsunami that struck just south of him missed his town by just a few clicks. Communications were down so his parents sat and worried for 20 hours before he could get in touch with them. Always have your pack supplied with first aid, water and food, no matter where you’re going. None of these people thought that anything bad would happen; their days started off just like any other. She was born and raised in the hills of West Virginia, where she learned to farm, hunt, fish, and live off the land from an early age.
Their visceral mix of thrills and introspection enthrall us, both on the page and at the movies. The film, which also won Oscars for its cinematography, visual effects, and original score, successfully blended live action and computer animation to weave an adventure imbued with faith and spirituality.
Robert Zemeckis directed this original story from William Broyles Jr., which saw Hanks scavenging through the plane’s cargo for provisions – and companionship, in the form of a volleyball he nicknames Wilson.
The film received six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for James Franco. As Ottway, Liam Neeson anchors the ensemble cast, which ventures into “some profound existential territory” amid brutal conditions and lyrical storytelling a la Jack London and Ernest Hemingway, the New York Times said. Even though he survived, doctors were forced to amputate both of his feet due to frostbite.

Tami survived by consuming limited amounts of food and water which she collected from the wrecked boat. Still, as we have previously pointed out, under the right circumstances people can be borderline invincible.
Suddenly, his ship was hit by what a spokesman later called a "sudden ocean swell" (which is presumably corporate speak for "Shit, we accidentally summoned Cthulhu again"). Trapped in the dark abyss with no one else in sight and wearing nothing but his boxers, Okene waded through the ship's corridors (which were slowly filling with icy water). He could hear them fighting for the remains of his shipmates in other rooms and swimming in the water just below him.
Meanwhile, Hollywood screenwriters are still trying to wrap their heads around the fact that a dude who was just about to get married actually survived a disaster. Getting caught in one means a quick, nasty, flying trip at NASCAR speeds, with lethal winds and flying debris in a heated contest to see who can pulverize you first. The twister had been hurling him around until he ended up in a grass field almost a quarter mile away and across a barbed wire fence.
Carry-dragging the injured Sandra with him, he started making his way down, an inch at a time. A movie is also in the works, although its production has been delayed -- presumably because they're still trying to find an actor who can read the script without being immediately hospitalized by a serious case of spontaneous ball-shriveling. He had envisaged housing - but decided instead to save the pub, restore it and rename it The Leeman Rose. The site was earmarked for a new police HQ for York, but the plans were never implemented and the pub continues to stand proudly on York's riverfront. The storm was blowing in so he decided to lay low in the timber of the tundra bowl between Mummy and Mt.
Stay below the timberline so that you have protection from the wind, always carry a fire starter and be aware of your surroundings.
He taught her survival skills and she called upon those when her family’s Piper twin-engine plane landed upside down in rural Kentucky.
Though her father had been flying since he was 16 and was a flight instructor with more than 4,000 logged hours, disaster still struck. You may have to get creative in finding ways to meet up with loved ones so outline a plan to regroup and communicate ahead of time.
One of them rode his horse another 10 miles back to his car, where he used his cell to call for help.
She prefers to live off the grid as much as possible and does her best to follow the “leave nothing behind but footprints” philosophy.
Although everyman Chuck finds some humor in his predicament, his physical, mental, and emotional challenges bring us to tears.
Critic Roger Ebert called the film “compulsively” watchable, praising Franco for suggesting Ralston’s cockiness and logic. There are a few men and women who have been able to survive things that could -- and by all rights should -- kill a horde of elephants.
He managed to locate a source of light, some Coca-Cola, and a few tools, and he made it to a relatively safe corner of the ship. Meanwhile, that lethally cold water aided Okene by absorbing the murderous carbon dioxide he was breathing out, so the CO2 levels never built up to toxic levels, either. Ollestad was more or less OK, because of course he was, but the other survivor (his father's girlfriend, Sandra) had a dislocated shoulder and a busted head.
Because the universe really wanted to rub it in, Sandra soon lost her grip and fell right before Ollestad's eyes. Hanging on by his fingernails, Ollestad made his way down until he finally got to more solid ground. Though his visibility was decreasing, he could still see the cairns so he headed swiftly back down the mountain. They’d been traveling home to Mount Vernon, Illinois in inclement weather from a Christmas vacation in Key West. She struggled with the straps and managed to unbuckle the hip belt but couldn’t get the sternum buckle undone.
If water is running high and swift, wait it out or head upstream to find a better place to cross.
She was flying through the air down into a 60-foot deep ravine and figured she was a goner for sure. She bandaged herself up as well as she could and started thinking about survival: first aid, food, water. Doctors surmised that had Amy been out there one more day, she would have died, or at the very least lost her left leg. For fun, she enjoys shooting, kayaking, tinkering on her car and motorcycle, and just about anything else that involves water, going fast, or the outdoors. The floor of the trailer started "moving just like Jell-O." A massive force hit the trailer, tearing the doors from their hinges and generally wrecking shit. This less-than-ideal situation was soon made a whole lot worse, because the rescue helicopters completely missed them. We assume that a cloud shaped like a middle finger drifted across the sky immediately afterward. Having found the challenge slightly too easy, he decided to up the ante by descending the rest of the way by skiing: He used a couple of branches as poles and his sneakers as skis. The storm kept worsening so he decided to head back up the mountain to try to find his original path.
She knew she couldn’t travel far but also knew that she was in a pretty remote area not often visited by people. There was far too little air for him to breathe, and he was ruining it with every breath by puffing out carbon dioxide.
