Children reunited with family after surviving 40 days in Amazon
Four children who survived weeks alone in Colombia's Amazon jungle have been reunited with relatives and have begun playing again, officials say. The four children were found after more than a month of searching by the military and local people. Astrid Caceres, the general director of the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare, said the children "Don't talk as much as we would like them to" and need time to recover. The children belong to the Huitoto indigenous group. The bodies of the three adults were found at the crash site by the army, but it appeared that the children had escaped the wreckage and wandered into the rainforest to find help.
