An Australian man who crashed his car in the outback on Aug. 30 survived after walking more than 62 miles for help. Thomas Mason, 21, was almost 100 miles from the nearest town on his way home from a job when his car hit a camel and became disabled. He said he knew he would die there if he did not make it back to the highway and find somebody. He spent two days walking through the desert and resorted to drinking his own urine. Three days after the crash, his parents realized he was missing and sent out a search party. Rescuers found him hours later, still almost 25 miles from the nearest town. Authorities treated him for exposure and dehydration but said Mason seemed to be cheerful.
