  • Four Colombian children who were missing for six weeks alone in the Amazon after a plane crash were airlifted out of the jungle.
  • The siblings, Lesly, 13, Soleiny, nine, Tien Noriel, four, and baby Cristin, who had his first birthday while lost in the rainforest, had been traveling in a light aircraft on May 1 when it crashed. The accident killed everyone else on board, the children’s mother Magdalena Mucutui Valencia, the pilot and an indigenous leader.
  • But when the wreckage of the plane was found after weeks of hunting not only were the children not found dead alongside the adults, there was part-eaten fruit that suggested they had all survived.
