13-Year-Old Lost in the Wyoming Wilderness Survives on Bugs and Tree Bark

When I was 13, I was still scared of sleeping in my parents basement, so I made them give me the room closest to theirs. Clearly, this 13-year-old is much braver than I was... 

The boy became separated from his Boy Scout group during a hiking trip in the Wyoming wilderness survived partly on bugs and tree bark for the nearly 37 hours he was alone.

The became separated from other Boy Scouts and their leaders when he went off a trail to go to the bathroom. 

He had a sleeping bag, a water filtration device, a little food and part of a tent. Not sure how long he might be lost, the boy ate ants and bark to preserve what little food he had.

The boy was found on a ledge overlooking the lake where he had stopped to wait for rescuers. Authorities said he did everything right to survive, including staying in one place after initially hiking about a mile.
