For the first time ever, survivors of the famous 1972 Andes plane crash tell in their own words their harrowing story of survival. The actual survivors of the 1972 Andes plane crash have finally spoken, and you will be captivated by their words. Gonzalo Arijon, a neighbor and friend of many of the survivors, has put together a documentary called Stranded: I Have Come From a Plane that Crashed on the Mountains that retells the story and illuminates it with commentary from all the survivors. The result is the closest one could possibly get to empathizing with that situation and gaining any sort of understanding of how life changes when you are stranded in the mountains for over 70 days.
