In Australia, we had an epic survival story called "The Stuart Diver survival story" (see Google).
He survived a landslide at the Threadbo ski resort and was trapped underground. It was watched live on national TV and Australian's lived this survival story as it was broadcast live. I would like to see this story on "I Shouldn't Be Alive".
Stuart Diver (born 14 January 1970 in New South Wales, Australia) is a ski instructor and was the sole survivor of the 1997 Thredbo landslide. At 11.35pm, on 30 July 1997, 3500 tonnes of rock and mud, slid down the side of Thredbo taking two ski lodges with it.
The landslide killed 18 people, one of whom was Diver's wife, Sally. After 26 hours in sub-zero temperatures With only a small blanket and Jacket, Diver was finally pulled from the rubble.
After the incident, Diver wrote a biography, Survival, with journalist Simon Bouda, detailing his struggles with the experience of the disaster and the aftermath.
