Survival in the Andes
The articles “The Andes Accident !Viven! The official website” and “I Am Alive: Surviving the Plane Crash” describes the story of the Argentinian Old Christians rugby team that decided to go to Chile for a match. The Argentinian team decided to take a cheap plane with a history of 6 different crashes prior. The plane had extra seats so they allowed for extra family and friends to come aboard for free. 45 people took off on Friday the 13th that unlucky winter of 1972. Seventeen of the 45 aboard where on the rugby team the rest where friends and family. Halfway through their flight the plane clipped a mountain and crashed in the middle eastern part of the Andes mountains.
