'Hibernation' saves Japanese man

A Japanese man has survived for 24 days in cold weather and without food and water by falling into a state of "hibernation", his doctor has said.

He had almost no pulse, his organs had been shut down and his body temperature dropped to 22C (71F) when he was found.

Medics say they are still puzzled how he survived because his metabolism was apparently almost at standstill.
complete article... This is amazing. Maybe they can learn something from him. I wouldn't mind to hibernate for a couple of decades when I'm near death's door.
