A man in Oregon was stuck in his car for five days during a snowstorm, but survived thanks to a couple of Taco Bell hot sauce packets.
On Friday, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon reported that a snowmobiler rescued Jeremy Taylor and his dog Ally.
Taylor, 36, who had been missing since last Sunday, told authorities that he wanted to take his Toyota 4Runner for an off-road spin near Sunriver in central Oregon. Unfortunately, Taylor’s vehicle got stuck during a snowstorm and he decided to sleep in his vehicle. And when he woke up the next morning, it was still snowing, reported station WTHR.
While he tried to leave the car with his dog, he found that the snow around the SUV was too deep.
“Jeremy stayed warm over the next four days by periodically starting his vehicle and used a few taco sauce packets he had as food,” Sargent William Bailey of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a statement on Saturday, obtained by ABC News.
Bailey also said rescuers found Taylor and Ally “in good condition, but hungry.”
Taylor later wrote a Facebook post letting his friends know he was OK.
“Thank you everyone, I’m safe my Ally dog is safe,” he said. “I really appreciate all the help. Got lucky, lets never do that again. I’ll be in touch with everyone soon.”
And when one of his friends commented on the hot sauce, Taylor said, “taco bell fire sauce saves lives.”
