About this title

Synopsis:

On October 13, 1972, a Uruguayan Air Force plane carrying members of the ''Old Christians'' rugby team -- and many of their friends and family members -- crashed into the Andes Mountains. As he tended to his wounded teammates amid the devastating carnage of the wreck, rugby player Roberto Canessa, a second-year medical student at the time, realized that no one on earth was luckier: he was alive -- and for that, he should be eternally grateful. As the starving group struggled beyond the limits of what seemed possible, Canessa played a key role in safeguarding his fellow survivors, eventually trekking with a companion across the hostile mountain range for help.

About the Author:

Dr. Roberto Canessa made history in December of 1972 for being one of sixteen young rugby players who endured months of severe cold, injuries, starvation, and isolation after their plane crashed into the snowcapped Andes -- an event that inspired the film Alive. He is a pediatric cardiologist at the Italian Hospital of Montevideo and recognized worldwide for his work, particularly with newborn patients and patients in utero.
