Flight 571 Survivor: Where is Daniel Strauch Now?

Who is Numa Turcatti?

Numa Turcatti, who was born on October 30, 1947. He had graduated from the Jesuit School of the Sacred Heart in 1994 and was 24 years old. He was in law school and had friends on the Old Christians rugby team.  This law student, who was 24 years old, got on Flight 571 from Montevideo.  At first, most of the team members weren’t familiar with each other, but the two months they spent stuck in the Andes brought them closer than friends.
People who lived through the disaster remember Turcatti as one of the “toughest and fittest” of them all. After the crash, where every day was a fight to stay alive against nature’s fierceness, Turcatti quickly became a leader in the group. His strength and drive were shown by the fact that he actively participated in expeditions to find a way out of the mountains, showing his dedication to the safety of all the stranded passengers.
As part of the first trip led by Roberto Canessa and Gustavo Zerbino, Turcatti, and his friends had to deal with the harsh conditions of the mountainous terrain. Even though they were facing snow-covered peaks and bad weather, the group’s desire to get out of the valley was clear. Turcatti’s determination on these dangerous trips showed how strong he was and how willing he was to face the problems that fate had put them through.
Some things went wrong on Turcatti’s trip, though. The group had to give up on their first try because they didn’t have enough supplies and didn’t know where they were. Turcatti refused to go along with the controversial plan to eat people to stay alive because he had a strong moral objection to eating people. Not giving up, Turcatti joined another expedition, but this time he ran into a new problem.

What happened to Numa Turcatti? How did Numa Turcatti die?

It is while the group is trying to find their way through the dangerous Andes that Turcatti hurts his leg. This minor injury sets off his tragic end. Because of the harsh conditions and lack of medical materials, this injury has become a very dangerous enemy.
Turcatti’s leg infection takes hold and slowly kills him from the inside. In a cruel turn of events, the same drive that drove him to go on adventures turns out to be a double-edged sword. Every day, the trips and the infection make him weaker because they are hard on his body.
Numa Turcatti dies of his illness on December 11, 1972, two weeks before he is finally rescued. Before he died, he had been fighting for his life for 60 days, during which time he lost 55 pounds. As the survivors think about Turcatti’s legacy, his death serves as a somber reminder of the terrible pain that their journey caused.
As a result of his unwavering dedication to his beliefs and his never-ending battle with both the outside world and his inner demons, Numa Turcatti’s tragic death adds another level of depth to “Society of the Snow.” His story adds a touching part to the story of all the survivors and shows how the Andes tragedy changed people’s lives in deep ways. Numa Turcatti’s performance in “Society of the Snow” made the actors and authors of this compelling story think deeply about their roles and personal feelings.
Having Enzo Vogrincic play Numa Turcatti gave the movie even more of a real feel. It was hard for Vogrincic, who played Turcatti, to show how hard the Andes experience was on his mind and body. As Vogrincic talked about how she prepared for the part, “I was very interested in getting into the culture of Uruguay and the culture of the time.” His attention to capturing the subtleties of the culture shows how much the cast wants to accurately portray the survivors’ history and culture.
Bayona talked about Turcatti’s story and said, “It’s more of a reflection book than an action book, and it really helped me understand the characters.” The director’s focus on getting to know the people instead of just showing what they do shows how deep the story he wanted to tell with “Society of the Snow.”
Pablo Vierci, who wrote the book that the movie is based on and is also an assistant producer, had a big impact on how the story turned out. Vierci knew the survivors well because he had known them since childhood, which made it easier for him to tell the stories. He said, “This is a story of 45 individuals providing a window through which we can observe how they endured major adversities and built a society where compassion and mercy prevailed.” Vierci’s words capture the spirit of the survivors’ journey as a group and the themes of kindness that run through the story.
Other survivors say that Turcatti “suddenly lost heart.” The infection, the physical damage, and the inner fight all come together to make a terrible mix. It’s moving to see how his failure to eat, even when his friends tried desperately to get him to eat, shows how the Andes ordeal transformed people’s spirits.
