Liliana Beatriz Navarro Petraglia de Methol, born on February 7, 1938, in Uruguay, was married to Javier Methol. Together, they enjoyed 12 years of companionship, marked by a memorable trip to Chile. The couple raised four children.

Tragically, Liliana and Javier were involved in a plane crash in the Andes, invited by Javier's cousin, Panchito Abal. Liliana, the sole surviving woman, played a crucial maternal role, offering comfort and support to the affected young people. She collaborated with the "doctors" Canessa and Zerbino, assuming nursing responsibilities and aiding in the care of the wounded.

Despite initial reluctance, Liliana eventually accepted the suspension of search efforts and the challenging decision to consume the deceased, driven by the desire to reunite with her children.

Regrettably, Liliana de Methol passed away on October 29, 1972, at the age of 34, due to the avalanche that buried the Fairchild 571.

Her remarkable story is immortalized in the film "The Society of Snow" (J.A. Bayona, 2023), with Argentine actress Paula Baldini portraying Liliana Methol, ensuring the perpetuation of her memory.
