Survivors of the 1972 Andes plane crash opened up to ET about their harrowing experience, which was recently told in Netflix’s ‘Society of the Snow.’ Uruguayan rugby players Roberto Canessa and Nando Parrado recounted what happened in the 72 days they waited to be rescued, from enduring lethal avalanches to the group resorting to cannibalism in the face of multiple life-threatening circumstances. In this 1993 interview, they also described pivotal moments that were portrayed in J.A. Bayona’s Oscar-nominated film, including the pair’s 10-day hike into Chile and the helicopter rescue of their fellow survivors. ‘Society of the Snow’ streams on Netflix.
