Documentary: Surviving The Cold

Font Size

Valery Malkov made the headlines when he fell out of a train in Siberia in -40 degrees Celsius wearing practically nothing, then ran 30 minutes to the next station and lived to tell the tale.

 

As described at Daily Mail: After leaving his compartment to go for a cigarette, Valery Malkov opened a door that should have been locked, hurling the 42-year-old into the hostile Siberian wilderness. But the hardy truck driver, thought to be from Bratsk in Russia's Irkutsk region, was undeterred by the conditions and began to chase after the train. After racing along the track for seven kilometres (4.3 miles) he eventually stumbled upon a tiny station. Mr Malkov said he was just as amazed as everybody else that he had not frozen to death. He said: 'When I was running I was not thinking about anything except for to get to the nearest post, station, anything.
'I don't know myself how I didn't freeze. And no, I never did winter swimming.'

RT explores the way the human body reacts and adapts to cold and meets frost enthusiasts who willingly subject themselves to extreme temperatures.
