Reflection on Survival Skills: most people would be surprised at what they would do to stay alive in a bad situation

I’ve heard many interesting survival stories about people beating the odds. I’m actually fascinated with the subject, and from time to time, I like to share people’s stories.

Here’s a good one: A 28-year-old preschool teacher, Pamela Salant, who survived three cold nights in the wild, using moss for a blanket and making a meal out of bugs and slugs until searchers finally found her. She told NBC News, "I didn’t realize I had it in me … I definitely surprised myself.”

Oh! The rest of the story: She fell 50 feet off a cliff and fractured her left tibia, and her leg was split open. She also sustained back injuries as she scooted to a nearby river in hopes of being found quickly.
