The New York Post – the 4th largest newspaper in the United States and leading digital media publisher – reported that a trucker from Portland, OR – Jacob Cartwright, 22 years old – was en route to his destination when he put in the wrong address and got stuck in the woods in an area with limited cell reception.
Cartwright was hauling a trailer full of potato chips and claimed he never ate or took any with him during his 14 mile walk in a span of four days.
He finally ended up in the town of La Grande dehydrated and determined to get back to his wife and kids.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
