True Survival Stories: Tales of Surviving the Impossible
1. Ricky Megee
In 2006, workers in a cattle station in one of the most remote areas of Australia came upon a man named Ricky Megee who claimed to have been stranded in the Australian outback for 70 days.
Megee said the last thing he remembered was his car breaking down during his cross-country drive. There is some speculation that he was the victim of a violent attack during which he was drugged. When he gained consciousness, he realized he was stranded.
For over two months, Megee survived on only frogs, snakes, lizards, and the water he found in a nearby dam. He lost over half his body weight before being found and rescued.
