Survivor, 1972 Andes Mountain Plane Crash; Author
In 1972, Nando Parrado and his teammates were traveling to Chile to participate in an international rugby exhibition. Their flight never arrived at its destination; it tragically crashed at 18,000 feet in the Cordillera de los Andes. Nando survived for 72 days and found his way out of the Andes after an 11-day snowy trek through the mountains with his friend Roberto Canessa. Soon after the rescue, both survivors worked with Piers Paul Read to write the bestseller, Alive. Twenty years later, Nando served as the technical advisor in the production of the film, Alive. Today, he is the President of Seler Parrado S.A., the founder of two media production companies, and an active sportsman.
