China: Miner Found Alive After 17 Years Underground
Due to a mining collapse during an earthquake, Cheung Wai, a 59-year old survivor from the 1997 accident, was trapped underground.

He managed to survive thanks to an emergency stash of rice and water, stored in an underground depot, conceived especially for this kind of case. The man complemented his diet by catching and eating the countless rats that pullulate in the mine, as well as collecting large quantities of some sort of phosphorescent moss, which constituted his only source of vitamins.”
