Rescued by Fire Ants

Rescued by Fire Ants

rating: ****

Imagine. You're 14,500 feet in the air, skydiving. *Tss tss* What's that? That's the sound of your parachute failing causing you to come spiraling downwards onto the ground. This is what happened to Joan Murray, September 1999. She landed upon a mound of fire ants, who managed to save her life. How did they do it? You will have to read the article yourself to find out this mindblowing story.
I really enjoyed this interesting article about such a small creature having the ability to save someone's life. Although the read could definitely be more detailed, I still recommend anyone to read it as it taught me to never underestimate anyone, even such a small creature like the fire ant.
under sports, great survival stories
