Teen vs Wild
But some of the survival skills exhibited by Bear Grylls have influenced and benefited kids in powerful ways.
Take the story of Jake Denham 14
Skiing with his family in Oregon on New Years Eve 2011, Jake found himself lost and alone on a mountain for 9 hours with temperatures hovering around 0° (degrees).
“It started getting dark, and I saw the stars. I saw Venus — it was red and bigger than the North Star. I dug a canal, and it went up a hill, so the wind would blow over it so the wind wouldn’t hit me,” Denham said.
Teen vs Wild
The teen recounted how after three hours he saw helicopters flying above him, but they didn’t come back. Recalling what he’d learned on “Man vs. Wild” and “Survivor Man,” he said he found ski trails and followed them down the mountain.
“I went down and then when I got lost, I got down on my hands and knees and followed the trail again,” he said, “I walked down, and then I saw lights.”
Thank you, Bear Grylls and the survival instructors who supplied training for the invaluable life-saving skills used by Jake and many others who avoid tragedy.
