Situation puzzleStand to the end

Mike has been standing on his knee in the middle of the desert for over a day. He is all alone and has neither food nor water. But he doesn’t leave the place. What’s the matter?

He thinks his foot is standing on a mine (although it is not).

It was ordered to Mike and his partner to kill terrorists. But the operation failed. A sandstorm helped them to escape, and they ended up in the desert. They didn’t notice at once that they were in a minefield.

Suddenly, Mike’s partner was blown up by a mine, his legs were torn off, and he died. Together with the explosion, Mike took a step and clearly heard that something clicked under his foot; he froze. He thought he had activated a mine fuse. This meant that if he lifted his foot, the mine would explode.

Mike managed to use a comset to inform his superiors about the situation. They told he that they would be able to help him in 52 hours only. And Mike decided to wait.

A day later, he felt very bad because of the heat and began to hallucinate. Unfortunately, he didn’t know that the click he heard was not of a mine, but of a tin can left in the desert by another person who had been blown up by a mine in the same field.
