This has to be one of the most dramatic stories of survival in the past many years.This endurance Runner was in excellent physical condition, and his body strength and stamina far above the average man's. His physical condition is what brought him through this lost in the Desert nightmare and as mentioned there was permanent damage to some of his body organs. If he had not found that small Oasis with water he would have died in that Hell Hole that has only a few living small animals that can survive there.

i think this has to be a bullshit story(at least partially), how could he have possibly gone that far after basically spending about(or at least) 3 days not moving? (first 2 days waiting for rescue, the temple where he made his home for a few days, and the oasis, plus nights to sleep), to go a distance from new york city to boston, and going over mountains, in the sahara, mostly without water, and with slashed wrists from a failed suicide attempt? nuh uh! sorry, it just doesn't add up.
teklife Dag geleden
@F R that's right, just about any idiot can tell direction by sun or stars, but much easier with the sun(morning sunrise, east set keep an eye on your shadow, hard in the winter in Seattle where there's no sun, easy in the desert where there's always sun), plus, this guy had training. Why then did he go southwest for so long? Any straight west or east route would have him pass over the trail again, which was marked. No way it's possible to cover that distance on foot on uneven terrain, sand, rocks, hills etc. New York to Boston is far even if you had to do it on roads. That would be 72 hours of non-stop walking which divided by 12, if you were to be walking literally the entire day nonstop is more than 10 days, so again, it doesn't add up, especially when you consider that he himself stated that he traveled in the early morning and in the late evening to avoid the heat of the day. I think what may be the case here is that this guy had it all planned so that he could write a book. stayed out in the desert surviving and spinning a fantastic yarn for his future book deal and fame and possibly, or most likely, with some (Touareg? ) accomplices. From Wikipedia article about this guy/incident: --In 1998, Marathon Des Sables founder Patrick Bauer told Men’s Journal that Prosperi’s story was a fabrication, saying : “Don’t listen to Mr. Prosperi, his story is a fabrication. He will have you believe he is Superman. It is physiologically impossible for a man to travel more than 200 kilometers in the desert without water. This is a supernatural act. It’s possible that he got genuinely lost for a few days. But all the rest rings false. We believe that early on he was picked up by someone. And then he decided to hide out for a while.[10] “He thought he could make a killing out of this if he prolonged his ordeal. He thought he could sell his story to the tabloids. He aspired to be the star of his own movie.”[10]-- Cool story bro, tell it again!
F R Dag geleden
Totally agree ... the competition was supposed to be 250km in 6 days with regular supply stations. If he really didnt move for 3 days he apparently somehow managed to keep almost the same pace (280+km in 7days) without any support (besides a few bats and 1 oasis) and severe dehydration. I also really question his route .... considering that he apparently ran straight to the soutwest he must have known where he was going (so either his compass worked after all or he managed to determine the cardinal directions by using the sun and stars). But why the f would he ever run south at all when he shouldve known that there is only more desert in that direction and going north/northwest will get him back to civilization within 100km or so. So many things just dont add up at all.

@Cory While he might have gotten lost and endured horrible things this story just doesnt sound real. How did he keep almost the same pace as that marathon event? Its one of the hardest competitions anyone can do and it was supposed to be 250km in 6 days with regular supply stations and daily rests. After already running half of this competition he somehow managed to go an additional 280+km in 9-10 days (out of which he didnt move at all for at least 2 days according to this video) while also passing a mountain range?! All he had to survive was food the blood of a few bats and 1 oasis?! Also, why did he go straight to the south west instead of going north/northwest? Going south is literally the worst direction to choose in this case. A lot of things just dont add up. Maybe someone picked him up in that bat tower or smth. But the events as described in this video are literally impossible.

The highest temperature ever recorded in the Sahara Desert is 58°C. At night, the average temperature is between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius. However, temperatures in the Sahara are not constant; there is variability according to the geographical areas and their climatic characteristics.
