A hiker who got stuck on Mount Tai survived on insects and grass for nearly two weeks before being rescued.
Surnamed Hong, the 43-year-old fell from a cliff while climbing with a shepherd guide, and passed out. When he woke up, he had extreme back pain and leg numbness, and his wallet and cell phone had gone.
Hong waited a week to be rescued, before managing to climb up the cliff to a reservoir, where he shouted for help. He ate whatever he could find, including wild grass, ants, worms, cockroaches, and mosquitoes, according to China News Service.
He was eventually found by a park employee, and is recovering at home after being in hospital.
