Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hey, I'm Alive is the true story of Ralph Flores and Helen Klaben. In 1963, pilot Flores and passenger Klaben survived a plane crash in the snowy hills of the Yukon. For 49 days, the two survivors endeavored to find food and warmth, to attract the attention of low-flying planes, and to preserve their sanity. When found, Flores and Klaben were frostbitten and dangerously close to starvation--but alert and alive. Ed Asner and Sally Struthers star in this made-for-TV film; they were directed by Lawrence Schiller, who as a Life magazine photographer covered the real-life rescue. Hey, I'm Alive first aired November 7, 1975.
