Surviving in the Andes

On October 13, 1972, a plane crashed into an Andes mountain. Some passengers managed to survive. Walking in freezing temperatures, the survivors sought shelter inside the wreckage. They had little food and no hope of rescue.

Two months later, three passengers named Roberto Canessa, Nando Parrado, and Antonio Vizintin decided to find help. The journey was hard and tiring. However, instead of finding an escape, they saw more icy peaks.

But hope remained. Parrado saw two snow-free peaks about 65 kilometers away. Vizintin went back to the plane due to the lack of food while the others decided to keep going. Fortunately, they found a small river and felt the warmth of the sun. The snow disappeared, replaced by colorful flowers. Canessa exclaimed, "This is the valley! This is the way out."

Ten days later, on December 21st, the exhausted men arrived in the town of Los Maitenes in Chile. A rescue team came to save the other passengers in the high Andes.

They all survived while waiting for help. The memories of the crash stayed with them, but their suffering was over.

21. The survivors didn’t have enough food in the Andes mountain.
