A month after a B.C. man spent practically every week trapped inside a truck off a Vancouver Island logging street, he’s properly sufficient to inform his story.

Duncan Moffat disappeared in early November after leaving the group of Sayward in his dad’s pickup truck.


“Sadly, I fell asleep,” Moffat stated from his wheelchair at Victoria Normal Hospital. “Drove off the street. It was a 40- to 50-foot embankment.”

That’s the place the 23-year-old would keep, drifting out and in of consciousness in what he describes as a “dream-like” state. He managed to outlive on a jug of Gatorade and crates of apples he had within the car.

“I used to be simply hoping, hoping that someone would discover me.”

A hunter passing by occurred to identify the wreckage from above and referred to as 911. The harrowing rescue took a number of hours, as rescuers wanted the Jaws of Life to chop away the drivers’ aspect of the car.

“Simply having someone to talk with and all the things, it actually calmed me down and made me notice I used to be going to get out of this.”

Moffat has but to thank the hunter in particular person, however plans to as quickly as he’s properly sufficient to go away the hospital. That may very well be one other couple of months. Then, there’s doubtless a yr of rehabilitation.

“It’s been attention-grabbing, coping with all the injuries.”

Moffat says his restoration hardly compares to these days spent trapped in his car within the woods, the place he got here to know [and] perceive the ability of human will, firsthand. It’s a lesson he’s holding onto.

“It’s positively been a pivotal second for me in my life — positively modified me,” he stated. “[I] is not going to hand over, that’s for certain.”
