Transcript for Two Survive Plane Crash in Alaska Wilderness
Moving on, now, to another remarkable story of survival. Two men escaping with their lives after a plane crash in alaska. They were forced to walk over eight miles through the wilderness before they were rescued. And one of them caught the plane's descent on camera. This north carolina man is lucky to be alive, after an adventure in alaska he will never forget. 65-year-old larry, an avid hunter, traveled to alaska for a moose hunt. His camera was rolling when the plane he was flying in failed and began to descend. I knew we were going down. I said, just give us a safe landing. And he did. Reporter: The pilot was able to land. But the plane had flipped over. Uninjured, the two men were able to get out of the wreckage. After a day and a half in the wilderness, with no rescuers in sight, the men set off for town, 12 miles away. It's like hunting a needle in a haystack. Reporter: Their only food, a pack of canned salmon and trail mix. We would drink all of the water we could. Reporter: After three days of walking, attacked by nasty bugs, they were spotted in a clearing by alaska state troopers. He is planning his next hunting trip. This time, to new mexico. But until then, he's enjoying some of the creature comforts of home. So glad they are okay. He was drinking it out of a red solo cup, too.
