BUENOS-AIRES, September 10 (Itar-Tass) —— In Bolivia, rescuers have found one surviving passenger of a private airline’s plane three days after its crash in the Amazon jungle, the local authorities said.
Previously it was thought that all nine people on board died. Among them there were were two foreign nationals from Colombia and Ecuador. The man who miraculously survived in the crash is a 35-year seller of cosmetics, Bolivia’s Minor Vidal. He suffered a head injury and broken ribs, but his life is not in danger. Currently he is receiving medical care. The man said that he had spent more than 15 hours under the debris of the aircraft. When he finally got out, he went deep into the woods in search of people.
He was found several kilometers from the place of the crash.
"We saw a man on the river, who was giving signals,” Captain David Bustos, who led the rescue operation, told the media. “When we got closer, he fell on his knees and started thanking God."
A small plane of the private airline Aerocon disappeared on Tuesday. It had left the city of Santa Cruz for Trinidad, the capital of the department of Beni, but failed to reach the destination. The search for the wreck was hampered by poor visibility due to fires in the area.
