A man from Taiwan is lucky to be alive after spending 47 days stranded in a part of the Himalayas.

This happened just days after his girlfriend died of starvation.

Liang Sheng Yueh, 21, and Liu Chen Chun, 19, were hiking through the Ganesh Himal Trail in northwestern Nepal when they lost their way following a snow storm.

They were rescued when rescue crews located a red tent on Wednesday. When found, Yueh’s feet were filled with maggots and his head has lice and had lost 66 pounds.
