Ill-prepared hiker fined $500. He set out with a bag of potatoes and one naan bread (no water?) on a route that would have taken him longer than he planned even for those inadequate provisions. Fortunately, he was rescued before he got himself killed. By comparison, missing teen used bush skills to survive: this autistic boy with cerebral palsy got separated from his father in the bush, and used the skills he learned from Scouts to survive more than 28 hours. The weather that day topped 42'C (107.6'F). He drank water from leaves and buried himself in the sand to stay cool.
