Storyline

US Air Force pilot Mike Couillard takes his ten-year-old son Matthew skiing in Turkey. Losing the trail in a freak snowstorm they wander blindly into the wilderness. Tired, cold and hungry, they find a cave to shelter for the night. Days pass with no sign of rescue, despite a massive search operation. Back home Mike's wife and other children wait, praying. Mike makes an agonizing decision to leave his son and seek help. Reaching some abandoned huts, he collapses. Two days later, he's discovered by passing woodcutters who he directs to the cave. They find Matthew, frostbitten but alive after his ten-day ordeal in the wilderness Written by Darlow Smithson Productions

Dumbest survivor of all time in this episode, worth watching for sure!
8 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know how to rate this one. This guy is extremely dumb, but still an entertaining episode. That old saying if your lost, stay where you are is BS after watching these shows. Few would be alive if they followed that farce. This dude and his son nearly died by that ridiculous cliché'. I rarely whine about peoples stupidity on this show, because people make mistakes and sometimes things just happen and hind site is 20/20. This episode on the other hand. The dudes like 1-2 miles from safety with no injuries and decides to wait for help (for 10 days, and nearly died). Mean while in other circumstances people are hiking 100's of miles with broken legs etc. to safety, this dude has skis and can go 1-2 miles in any direction to safety. Mind blowing.
