Back home, his family, including his pregnant wife, organized search and rescue efforts. Laga says he could see helicopters flying overhead but they were unable to spot him. He reports he survived by eating insects that tasted like “unbuttered popcorn,” berries and drinking creek water. Laga caught a lucky break when he stumbled into a campsite around 1 a.m., drawn in by the light of the camper’s headlamp. “I was very gifted, blessed and protected,” Laga told ABC. “As much as a lot of things went wrong, there were a lot of key things that went right—if I had not gone that way, if I had met an animal, if it would have been rainy at night, there were a lot of things that could have gone wrong that didn’t.” Learn to fish, backpack and more at an upcoming workshop hosted by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
