Renowned Climber Survives Avalanche That Killed Girlfriend, Then Kills Himself The Next Day

A renowned climber committed suicide the day after an avalanche took the life of his girlfriend. According to the NY Daily News, 27-year-old Hayden Kennedy and his girlfriend, 23-year-old, Inge Perkins, were skiing at Imp Peak in Bozeman, Montana, on Saturday. They triggered an avalanche that buried Kennedy three feet under the avalanche and left Perkins missing.

Her body was recovered on October 9. He was able to dig himself out from the 150-foot-wide slide and left a note with “incredibly clear directions for where to find her” when he couldn’t. On October 10, he took his own life in his Bozeman home.

Lukas Cavar Survives Being Trapped In Cave By Licking Walls …

A college freshman says he survived a 60-hour stay inside a locked Indiana cave by licking the wall. 

Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar, 19, was on a spelunking trip with 12 others from the school’s caving club to Sullivan Cave, located 10 miles away from Bloomington. At some point in the exploration of the cave, Cavar separated from the group. According to CBS News, club members had padlocked the cave’s gate. Because there was no cell phone signal, the teen reportedly screamed for hours, hoping that somebody on nearby road might hear him.

“It took me a little while to wrangle my emotions and sort of approach things analytically, sensibly, to come up with a game plan to survive,” Cavar said Thursday.

He was rescued on Tuesday. He attempted to pick the padlock with a paper clip, with no success. To survive, he used energy bar wrappers to collect moisture and the

Missing Woman Survives In Wilderness For Month Eating Only Berries And Mushrooms

A missing Alabama woman has been found alive after being reported missing nearly a month ago, according to Alabama NBC affiliate WSFA.

Lisa Theris’s father was last in contact with her on July 18. For the past month she had been living off berries, mushrooms and water from streams, lost in the dense forest of rural Alabama after fleeing the scene of a crime she wanted no part of.

Police previously told WSFA Theris was in the company of two men; Manley Davis, 31, and Randall Oswald, 36, when the men broke into a hunting lodge in Midway, Alabama. Officials say she had no idea the men intended to commit a robbery, and not wanting to be an accessory to a crime, the 25-year-old radiology student ran away from the men into the nearby woods.

According to Daily Mail, the theft amounted to $40,000 worth of items,
