4 children survived a plane crash and 40 days alone in the Amazon jungle. The youngest is a baby

Four Indigenous children survived an Amazon plane crash that killed three adults and then wandered on their own in the jungle for 40 days before being found alive by Colombian soldiers. The announcement of their rescue on Friday brought a happy ending to a saga that had captivated many Colombians, a watch with highs and lows as searchers frantically combed through the rainforest hunting for the youngsters. President Gustavo Petro celebrated the news upon returning from Cuba and said he hoped to talk with them over the weekend. They were being flown to Bogota to be checked at a hospital. No details have been released on how the four siblings aged 13, 9, 4 and 11 months managed to survive on their own for so long.
