72 - Days of ordeal, Nando Parrado and other survivors
of a plane crash in the Andes had to endure before being
 rescued. Flying over the mountains on a Friday the 13th,
 the young men and their families who boarded the charter
 plane joked about the unlucky day when the plane's wing
 hit the slope of the mountain and crashed. On impact,
3 passengers were instantly dead while 32 others were
badly wounded. Hoping to be rescued, the survivors
waited in the freezing -37C temperature, melting snow
for drinks and sleeping side by side to keep themselves
 warm. Food was so scarce, everyone had to pool
whatever food they can find for a rationed pool.
