    Missing Dutch, Brit students survived 8 days lost on mountain

    Missing British student David Mackie and two Dutch friends, Friso de Vries and Marije de Groot, survived eight days lost on a mountain in Turkey, by eating insects.

    The three left on January 11th to hike the Lycian Way in Anatlya but became lost and were left without food or shelter due to floods, before finding a cave. 21-year-old Mackie finally got an emergency call through last Friday and Turkish search and rescue found them Monday. They look thin, but very relieved and happy.

    How scary! Good thing they had some survival skills to fall back on!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
