    I remember reading the book about it and I was really impressed by their resilience... Do you choose life or morals if you were in their position?

      There was a part in the book. Where this woman refused to eat somebody else. So she starved... and the group respected her wishes and left her body. (They didn't eat her) so yes some people chose moral over survival.

      They would of had respect for those who died they would of carved the flesh and then buried the bodies its the least they could do if you watch the movie Alive made in 93 you can tell they didn't want to eat the dead

    They are hating on them for trying to survive? If you were stranded somewhere and you were the only survivor, with 3 dead body's nothing else. You would obviously eat the body.

  • A man has no name

    I met them. they came to my university in Mexico (Tec de Monterrey) to give a conference and i had to chance to talk to them after the conference. Another story one of them tol me is that he had found a piece of candy and he hid it in his pocket it lasted him for days as he would just give few licks per day when nobody was looking. It took him 30 years to confess this to the other survivors.

      They could of but at the time they didn't need it so they weren't thinking of it as a tool to survive with it could of been used to give off a position to anyone they might have saw 3 shots in the air is the international SOS with gun fire

    In that situation morality and respect for the dead comes second to surviving. Those living still have a chance and loved ones out there. Is keeping the dead in tact and not being eaten worth condemning the survivors to death? Why would the dead’s flesh be more important than a living being. You have to do what you have to do to survive

      Let's not forget it was the 70s and something like that was RARELY heard of they didn't have the internet or anything and could only get there info from the media so it was also a different time period

    They actually had a lot of rations left, but they saw a plane flying overhead and thought that it was a search party and ate the rations, all of this was before they had decided to eat the bodies of the dead.

    I would become a cannibal if there are many others to be saved in the same situation and the group all agreed. I would not become a cannibal to save myself or 1 or 2 other people.
    Ill admit it... I have ate kids before.

    Sour Patch Kids are pretty sour and eating many will make your tongue sore.

    This helps alot to know.
    1st. If you're flying over frozen mountains. Bring survival gear.
    2nd. Bring communications device.
    3rd. Bring Xtra clothing
    4th. enough dry food for 2 months aleast.
    5th. Heating element to stay warm.

      Of course, they would of thats what no one thought of personally if i was on the plane and i was dead i would expect my body to be consumed if there was no food in death i could still save someone else life and to me thats beautifully poetic my dead body can help someone survive and live a life they deserve
