5 Interesting Survival Stories You Should Definitely Know

In this article, you will be introduced to the five of the weirdest survival stories you should know.

The first story goes when five American soldiers volunteered to stand below an exploding nuclear missile on July 19, 1957. They agreed to do it for a science experiment. To be precise, it was a test of a 2KT (kiloton) MB-1 nuclear air-to-air rocket launched from an F-89 Scorpion interceptor. Surprisingly to many, all five of them survived.

The next story is of a six-year-old Chinese boy named Ming Ming. When he awoke from his nap and couldnt find his grandfather, he decided to look for him in the 8th-floor window. Unfortunately, he lost his balance and almost fell from the 8th floor. So what saved Ming Ming? The answer was that his ears saved him when they got stuck in the iron grates preventing his death. He was so scared that he screamed so hard making the passers-by below to notice him and call for help. He got free the iron grates when his rescuers used a hydraulic pressure expander to force the bars apart and pull him back to his familys flat. You can read more here for an in-depth knowledge.

Way back on May 26, 2013, one man named Harrison Okene survived being buried alive 100 feet below the ocean surface with just a tiny pocket of air. Reports say that an ocean swell capsized the tugboat when Okene was on his way to the restroom. He get stuck inside the restroom for 60 hours and had no food, water, or light and just listened to the sounds of ocean creatures scavenging through the ship on his dead crewmates.

The next story may sound surreal but happened in real life. On June 2014, 18 passengers and two pilots of a plane headed for Congo. However, not one of the passengers had a clue that a three-foot-long crocodile was smuggled on board. When the crocodile escaped, it startled one cabin crew member making her run forward, with the other passengers following. Because of the weight shift, the plane stalled and plummeted to the ground. Reports claim that only one passenger was able to survive it. Read more here for additional information.

Our last story happened way back in June 1985 when good friends Joe Simpson and Simon Yates climbed the Siula Grande. Since they only brought a few food and camping gears, they had to wholly rely on their partner. When they were climbing down, Simpson fell and broke his right leg and heel. Because of this, Yates had to lower Simpson down the mountain using ropes in stages. A few lowerings passed when Yates suddenly felt more weight on the rope and faced with an unseen cliff edge. Yates had to make a choice whether to die alongside his friend or survive by himself. He quickly chose the latter and expected for Simpson to be dead. However, Simpson was able to survive the 50 feet fall into the mountain crevasse. To this date, they share their almost death experience through documentaries.
