10/19/07: Miracle in the Andes
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – In 1972 a chartered plane carrying members of a Uruguayan rugby team crashed on a 12,000 foot glacier in the Andes Mountains. In his book which candidly recounts the 72 day ordeal, Nando Parrado says his every moment was filled with visceral fear. But weeks into the experience he also came to a kind of epiphany. He realized he had to take the experience one step, one moment, one breath at a time. Doug spoke with Parrado about his improbable story of survival. (Rebroadcast)
