Nothing like a feel-good story of man whose life was saved by Taco Bell to kick off your Sunday morning.
According to Fox29, an Oregon man and his dog were stranded in the snow for 5 days, surviving on only Taco Bell packets for food and occasionally starting his car to keep warm.
A snowmobiler found Jeremy Taylor, 36, of Sunriver, on Friday and a search and rescue team member who rode to him on a large snow tractor brought him out of the woods, said Sgt. William Bailey, the spokesman for the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
Taylor was off-roading with his dog Ally, but when snow became too deep they were forced to spend the night in their car. When even more snow fell, hiking out was next to impossible and the two were stranded for 5 days before a snowmobiler found them.
“Thank you everyone, I’m safe my Ally dog is safe. I really appreciate all the help. Got lucky, lets (sic) never do that again. I’ll be in touch with everyone soon,” he wrote on his Facebook page late Friday.
In response to a friend’s Facebook comment about how he ate Taco Bell hot sauce packets during the ordeal, he joked: “Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives!”
Next time Taco Bell questions the amount of sauce you just took, just point them to this story. It could be the difference between life and death.
