Desperate Times and All That
What do you do if you're trapped in your car in an avalanche? Well, if you're Richard Kral, you get drunk and well... wizz your way to freedom.
A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.... He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported.I guess you gotta do what you gotta do. He's just lucky he didn't die of alcohol poisoning or got frostbite on certain body parts.
Rescue teams found him drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains.
