A hiker from New York is lucky to be alive after spending two frigid nights stranded on a snow-covered volcano in Hawaii.
Rangers from the National Park Service have rescued a 36-year-old computer science professor from Queens, New York, who found himself isolated near the summit of Mauna Loa on Tuesday. Alex Sverdlov was hiking down from the summit when a sudden winter storm overtook him. Thankfully, park rangers knew where he was because he had a hiking permit. Rangers also credited his overall fitness and clear thinking for keeping him alive. Sverdlov says his next adventure on the mountain will be a hike at a lower elevation near the ocean. Aloha, Russ.
