Trapped inside his van for two days, barely surviving on rainwater, an East Texas man lives to tell his story. Last week, Craig Partin of Laneville was driving along a farm to market road when he lost control of his van and dove headfirst into a ravine. From his hospital bed he told East Texas News reporter Tracy Walter his amazing story of survival.
"I just had the Lord and my family on my mind and I was thinking Lord don't let me go, my wife don't need this." 39-year old Craig Partin's prayers were answered. Today, he's alive and well, a week after hanging on for dear life. Craig says he fell asleep while driving, lost control of his van and went airborne, straight into a ravine.
