Man survives in a snow covered car for two months

A man has been found alive trapped in a snow covered car for almost two months in the Swedish wilderness. Doctors say it is a miracle that someone could survive without food and water in temperatures as low as -30C.

Rescuers were amazed to find a man in his mid-40s huddled inside in a sleeping bag "in really bad shape", starving and barely able to move or speak.
