Four children who survived a plane crash are found safe after 40 days in the Colombian jungle
Four children have survived for 40 days in a row in a Colombian jungle where they fell after an air accident that happened on May 1.
It took more than 1 month for the authorities to track down the survivors not only of the serious air crash but also of staying in such difficult conditions as the search and rescue operation.
The Colombian Ministry of Defense said the most difficult part of the operation was bringing the four children from the dense forest of Guaviare in which they were found, in a helicopter that was over 60 meters high as it could not land because of the trees.
Army special forces are seen in videos shared online taking the four children in their arms and with the help of a metal cable attached to a winch operated by the plane, took them aboard.
The children traveled from San Joseé del Guaviare to the capital Bogota by military plane, along with their father, one of their grandparents and other family members.
At the air base, four ambulances were waiting for them, which transferred them to the military hospital in Bogota, where they will perform medical checks.
The children appear to be in poor health.
