Eating Coal to Survive


Two Chinese brothers who tunnelled their way out of a coal mine collapse after being trapped for nearly six days survived by eating coal and drinking urine, according to a newspaper report.
.....
He said because they were eating coal and were in the mine for nearly six days, they did not defecate.

"We were only able to do that the day before yesterday in hospital. It was full of coal," he said.

Both men say they will not go back into mining.
