Man Living In Vietnam Claims To Be Missing Prisoner Of War
Dengler and Duane vs. The Jungle
Barefoot, sick, bloodied, and exhausted, the two ran through the jungle. The pair found the sole of an old tennis shoe and traded off wearing it for some limited respite from their pain. Finally, they found a river which they knew would eventually flow into the Mekong River, and then the border of Thailand where then, at last, they would be safe.
They built a raft and battled the river while hiding from their pursuers. In the morning, they were both weak and covered in mud and leeches.
