The survivors of Uraguay Flight 571, which crashed in the Andes in the 1972. The survivors waited 2 months for help and had to resort to eating the flesh of dead passengers to survive
The survivors had extremely little food: eight chocolate bars, a tin of mussels, three small jars of jam, a tin of almonds, a few dates, candies, dried plums, and several bottles of wine. During the days following the crash, they divided this into small amounts to make their meager supply last as long as possible. Parrado ate a single chocolate-covered peanut over three days.
