Transcript of Survival Prezi
What is survival?
'The state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances'
Survival is when you persist through troubled times in the knowledge and hope that things will get better. It is when, be it a life or death situation or a minor, everyday mistake, you chose to carry on instead of giving up.
A story of survival
Juliane Koepcke was just 17 when the plane she was on was struck by lightning and crashed in the Peruvian rainforest.
She spent 11 days walking through the rainforest until she could barely stand.
She finally came across a group of men who looked after her and took her to safety.
Juliane had to deal with snakes, spiders, mosquitoes, piranhas, heavy sunburn, alligators and a large maggot infestation in a cut on her arm.

127 Hours is a movie based on a true story of a mountain climber’s remarkable adventure to save himself after a terrible accident. Aron Ralston was climbing when all of a sudden he fell. His arm got trapped between some rocks. . He was there for 5 whole days. He had hardly any food or water. Aron had very little chance of surviving. He knew the only way out was to cut his arm off with his pocket knife, and this is what he did. Thankfully a family found him and got a helicopter and an ambulance and he was rushed to hospital. He had lost his arm but in the end he survived.
With this story in mind, the question we ask you is: what lengths would you go to in order to survive?
