Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571
Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 was a chartered flight that crashed on a glacier at 3,600 metres (11,800 ft) altitude in the remote Andes. Facing starvation and death, the survivors reluctantly resorted to cannibalism. After 72 days on the glacier, 16 of the 40 passengers were rescued.
The flight carrying a rugby team, family, and friends originated in Montevideo, Uruguay and was headed for Santiago, Chile.
