When the Andes flight crashed lots of people got hurt and many people died. The survivors were very little because in the mountain they crashed was really cold. People didn't had where to get food so everyone who died needed to be eaten so survivors could stay alive. It was awful but very important in history. only 16 people survived from the 45 people that were on board. The plane crashed in Los Andes in 1972. Los Andes is a mountain in south America. People had allot of possibility of dying because of the freezing wether.
