Lightbulb Andes flight disaster

Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 (=13), also known as the Andes flight disaster and, in South America, as the Miracle of the Andes (El Milagro de los Andes) was a chartered flight carrying 45 people, including a rugby union team, their friends, family and associates, that crashed in the Andes on 13 October 1972.. More than a quarter of the passengers died in the crash and several others quickly succumbed to cold and injury. Of the 27 who were alive a few days after the accident, another 8 were killed by an avalanche that swept over their shelter in the wreckage. The last 16 survivors were rescued on 23 December 1972, more than two months after the crash..13 October (Fri) Day 1—crashed at 3:34 pm..5 people dead (Ferradas, F. Nicola, E. Nicola, E. Parrado, Vazquez), 7 people missing (Martinez, Ramirez, Costemalle, HouniĆ©, Magri, Shaw, Valeta). Alive: 33... won't kill indiscriminately.. No... selectively.. We don't want to break up families.. I found your Private Reich up there... or what was left of him..You didn't finish! Well, I can't blame you: he was tough..It's lonely being a cannibal.. Tough making Friends..Stew a la Major Knox..Breakfast.. Lunch..And Reinforcements...
