It was one of those things that only happened on TV; a five passenger plane crash in the midst of the Rocky Mountains where everyone survived. Of course, in line with the extreme improbability of the situation, they had crashed in a low valley and damaged their emergency beacon along the way. They were rescued four days later, having built a fire, constructed a lean-to, done passable first aid on the wounded, and made enough extra rootstock stew to offer their rescuers a bite. Embarrassed, but alive, the five were forever known as ‘Those Guys Who Were Saved by Reality TV’.
The Discovery Channel was very quietly smug.
