Stranded Alaskan Survives by Eating Frozen Coors Light Like a Can of Beans

Jeremy Short · Dec. 6


Yeah, that's right, Clifton Vial of Nome Alaska went on an adventure in his Toyota Tacoma only to get stuck in a snowdrift with just a few cans of Coors Light to keep him going. Stranded in his truck for over 60 hours with the temperature dropping to 12 below (that's not a windchill temperature) Vial found the Coors Light. Since the beer was frozen Vial "ate the beers like a can of beans." Awesome. Vial explains to the Anchorage Daily News, "I cut the lids off and dug it out with a knife." That is one desperate situation. I am half tempted to freeze a can of Coors just to say I've eaten a can of Coors.


The good news is that Vial was rescued and managed, remarkably, to avoid frostbite. He also dropped 16 pounds over the course of the 3 days. Well, I guess he was drinking "light" beer.
