Bear Grylls is a fixture as a survival expert. His long running television shows have demonstrated logical and practical techniques to survive a potentially dangerous situation. Here is such a case.
It’s probably the last thing anyone would think while watching the ‘Bear Grylls’ show, to get stuck in the woods and live on creepy crawlies.
But for one mother and son, duo this turned out to be a reality. According to reports, the two were lost for ten days in the Australian bush and used survival tactics inspired by Bear Grylls.
Michelle Small, 40, and her nine-year-old son Dylan Deane, from the New South Wales town set off for a short bushwalk in the Mount Royal National Park in the Hunter Valley on October 2.
But they eventually lost their way in the rugged bushland. They struggled with harsh weather and no food for ten days, but were able to get by thanks to Bear Grylls.
Hunter Valley Acting Superintendent Rob Post told news.com.au: “It is amazing they have actually survived for so long.”
“Even more amazing is that nine-year-old Dylan has come out with insect bites but quite fit and able – he looks like he could do the whole thing again,” he said.
Superintendent Post said the pair had gathered water using techniques learned from adventurer and expert survivalist Bear Grylls.
