Igloo car survivor 'lived in vehicle'

A MAN who survived more than two months in a snow-covered car had been living in the vehicle since last summer, when he was a regular customer at a local petrol station.

Peter Skyllberg endured temperatures of -30C as he stayed inside the car through most of December, January and February after it was covered by heavy snow in a forest near the town of Umea in northern Sweden. He was eventually found, apparently emaciated and barely able to move or speak, by passers-by.

Mr Skyllberg was said to have survived on nothing but snow, but investigators believe that he also ate a "salve or ointment" that was found in the car.
