An Oregon man, who became trapped in his car by snow, says he survived 5 days thanks to Taco Bell hot sauce.
According to Buzzfeed News, Jeremy Taylor was stuck in his car for nearly 5 days, after snow trapped his vehicle on a rural road. Taylor reportedly took a forest service road to go off-roading, bringing his dog along with him. After leaving for his trip on Sunday and failing to return, the sheriff’s office released a missing person report for Taylor on Thursday.
The sheriff’s office made a Facebook post, requesting help in finding Taylor, and noting his last known location at a gas station in Sunriver, Oregon. That Friday afternoon, a snowmobiler came across Taylor and his vehicle. Rescue crews were notified, and found Taylor and his dog in his car “in good condition, but hungry after being stuck in the snow.”
Taylor explained that he had fallen asleep in his vehicle, and woke up to find they were snowed-in. He was unable to safely leave, and said he survived the multiple days by periodically starting his car for warmth and finding Taco Bell sauce in his car for food. “Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives,” Taylor said in response to questions of how he survived.
