Irongarmer survives 2 months trapped in snow-covered car!

Post by TerryB » Tue Feb 21, 2012 6:44 pm

Who is Peter Skyllberg on here? The article doesn't identify him as a poster on IGx but he has all the markings: he was following an intermittent fast (2 months without food), overweight (allowing him to survive on nothing but water and bodyfat), and not missed by ANYONE for two months.
Peter Skyllberg, a 44-year-old man from Sweden, survived two months trapped in his snow-covered car due to a "natural igloo" that formed from the air trapped in the vehicle, the Telegraph reports.

In a stroke of luck, a passerby found Skyllberg in his car in Umea, a town a little south of the Arctic Circle, where the Telegraph reports authorities say he was in "really bad shape." He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, where he is expected to be released in a few days after a full recovery. The temperature in the area had reportedly dropped to -30 F.

Doctor Ulf Segerberg, the Chief Medical Officer at Norrland's University Hospital told the paper in a separate report that, combined with the igloo effect, it's not unheard of a human to survive without food for that long.

"Starvation for one month, anyone can tolerate that if they have water to drink," Segerberg told the Telegraph. "If you have body fat, you will survive even longer, although you end up looking like someone coming from a concentration camp."

The BBC reports that one doctor told the Swedish Vasterbotten Courier that Skyllberg survived by going into a "kind of hibernation."

Segerberg recognized that Skyllberg's survival was against the odds, the Telegraph reports.

"This is a case in a lifetime. Every winter we have people who have frozen to death. But a case like this, with someone caught outside for such a long time, is very rare, because it's very rare that you are not missed by anyone, which seems to be the case in this instance."

So far Skyllberg has declined to be interviewed, the paper reports, and only wants everyone to know that he is doing better.

The funny thing is that the car was in the driveway of the house where the man lives.

Newly emerging details of "Peter's" furious masturbation, the racism directed at one of his rescuers coupled with tearful shouts of "Thank you for your service" proves your thesis beyond reasonable doubt. My money is on that Songjabong dude.

can someone explain how he actually got stuck? The survival thing, igloo effect, whatever I can believe that.

But feet of snow don't just cover your car instantly unless you're in an avalanche. Unless he was sitting there and just saw it snowing and said, "nah...I'll just wait for it to pile up"

Something does not add up.

I read an article about this in the telegraph this morning. It claimed he was reluctant to be taken out of the car. Said he went in purposely with the intention to hibernate, and that once he was recovered, fully intended to return to his car.

Sometimes a good night's sleep isn't enough, you need to hibernate. The man was living in his car. He went to sleep. When he woke up he was snowed in. Rant tell me that he will duplicate what happened to the Swede, in a last ditch effort to lose weight. See his blog for further details.

I believe he survived on a steady diet of CrustyPorn attained through the Forum Runner app.
