Wasn't there some sort of airplane crash incident a couple decades ago where this actually happened? In South America somewhere?

It sounds logical, but it isn't necessarily; if you're talking alpine conditions, then getting down requires considerable skill and experience, adequate equipment, and a very high level of fitness. The survivors of the crash described above (in the link) were only rescued in the end because a small handful of them fit these qualifications, and they weren't rescued until more than two months after the crash.

You can't. There is a blizzard and you are 100's of miles into the Rockies. You have no GPS system and, no, your cell won't work either.

Why? To me, it's no different than being an organ donor.

Depends if there is WATER!

There is no point eating anything, especially meat, unless there is water available as eating increases the bodies need for water.

In a survival situation food is actually a low priority until around 2 weeks and that's if your body fat stores are low!
