Left for Dead!

Posted in Claire Burgess, Dubai, Dubai Eye, Dubai Today, Media, Radio by Claire Burgess on January 25, 2009

So I’m in to my last week here at Dubai Eye now. One of the big highlights from work last week was Ricky Megee. He was drugged in Australia’s Northern Territories and left for dead. He managed to survive there for 70 days on a diet of frogs, snakes and leeches before being rescued. He has written a book about what happened called ‘Left for Dead in the Outback’. It includes some shocking pictures including one of him just after he had been found…having lost a lot of weight. A truly shocking and amazing story of survival.

Listen to the interview here:
