This story is set in 1982 on the highest slopes of a mountain in New Zealand. The two men, Mark Inglis and Phil Doole ran into a blizzard. They built an ice cave to escape it. Unfortunately, the blizzard kept on going for 13 days! All they had in the cave were meager rations and no warmth at all. Unfortunately, since the circulation went off in their legs, they had to be amputated. They managed to survive. The craziest thing is the fact that they still climb mountains with their prosthetic limbs. Mark became the first double amputee to conquer Mount Everest!
