A man whose car was stranded in his car for 5 days after an Oregon snowstorm, survived by eating taco sauce packets, the Associated Press reported.
Jeremy Taylor, 36, was discovered on Friday by a snowmobiler and a search and rescue team member who rode to him on a large snow tractor brought him out of the woods, said Sgt. William Bailey, the spokesman for the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
He told his rescuers he and his dog, Ally, became stuck in deep snow on a U.S. Forest Service road later that same day, according to the report.
He slept in his car and when he awoke Monday, more snow had fallen.
He attempted to hike out, but the snow was too deep, so Taylor and Ally returned to his car.
“Thank you everyone, I’m safe my Ally dog is safe. I really appreciate all the help. Got lucky, lets (sic) never do that again. I’ll be in touch with everyone soon,” he wrote on his Facebook page late Friday.
Taylor and his dog were both in good health when found, authorities said, but were very hungry.
