What made you want to write another book? I encouraged everyone to write his own book because they are 16 different stories of survival. Personally, I believe this was a kind of experiment by a malicious hand that decided to throw onto the mountain a group of young rugby players. University students with education and a belief in God—ideal guinea pigs for an experiment in human behavior. Who survived? The ones who survived were those who most felt the joy of living. That gave them a reason to survive.
Because I was lucky. And because I always go step by step.
There was always something to do, and I am very active. I nearly gave up when the avalanche struck us. He had broken legs—but I could walk. My mission was not to just think what was better for me, but what was better for the group. You used many ingenious methods to survive, like melting snow using a sheet of aluminum from the back part of one of the seats. Talk about some of the other things you did.
We needed blankets, so we skinned the seats of the plane, which contained a wool fabric. We put all the suitcases at the back of the fuselage to keep out the weather. We used the bottom of the seats for snowshoes and built hammocks for the people with broken legs. Everyone had a role, and because I was a medical student, I was in charge of the injured persons.
We melted snow to get water.
We filled our rugby socks with meat for the trek out and used the insulation from the kitchen to make sleeping bags. At night, we used rugby balls to pee in because if you went outside your pee would freeze. You also practiced cannibalism. We had to eat these dead bodies, and that was it. The flesh had protein and fat, which we needed, like cow meat. I was also used to medical procedures so it was easier for me to make the first cut.
