Snowmobiler Survives 3 Days in Alaskan Wilderness, Fights Wolverine

Craig Johnson was on his way to visit family for the holidays when his snowmobile fell through the ice in the wilderness near Wainwright, Alaska on December 15. The 38-year-old spent the next three days trying to survive in sub-zero temperatures and even fought off a wolverine at one point. Suffering from frostbite, dehydration, injuries sustained from the snowmobile crash, and hypothermia, Johnson was finally rescued on December 18. Not surprisingly, many people involved with the rescue effort called the man’s survival nothing less than a miracle—and that includes Johnson himself.

“I almost gave up […] but I couldn’t give up. I had to do it for my boys, my family,” he told ABC News. “I think it’s a miracle that I’m alive.”
