In 1999, Anna Bågenholm, who was 29 at the time, was skiing with her friends Marie Falkenberg and Torvind Næsheim when an accident left her trapped under a layer of ice for 80 minutes in freezing water. Her deep body temperature decreased by 24°C to a record low of 13.7 °C. Bågenholm suffered circulatory arrest after 40 minutes in the water. She was “dead” for 3 hours. This is the remarkable story of one of the world’s greatest survivors.
