Snowshoer Survives Backcountry Ordeal

This story in the Vancouver Sun is a couple of days old now, but I saw it while surfing by Outdoor Ed today. It seems that Chris Morley, a 37 year old carpenter and father of three, went snowshoeing recently on Mount Seymour, and fell down a two-hundred meter gulley, breaking his ribs and a wrist in the process. He was stranded out their for three days and two nights, before being found by a Search and Rescue team.

This guy is lucky to be alive and he owes a lot to the team that found him. He suffered from hypothermia and was said to be hours away from death when he was discovered. Mount Seymour, by the way, is located in northern Vancouver, in British Columbia, Canada.
