Problem Solving, Yer-a-peein' Edition
Europe has been hit with its heaviest snows in more than 50 years. Richard Kral, a Sloviakian man trapped in his car beneath an avalanche, yearned to get out; then he used urine to get out. Thanks to about 3 cases of beer and the will to survive, Kral escaped behind a trail of yellow snow. That is, if you believe this story. I'm having trouble with it.
A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.

Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains.
There's no way this story is true, right? How would you even breathe long enough to drink 60 beers, even if you could drink them all in one sitting, which you could not.
