A different sort of story about bravery and resourcefulness in the face of certain death:

Man peed way out of avalanche

In the Slovak Tatra mountains:

He said: “I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I’m glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there.”

Seriously.
