Bolivian found alive days after plane crash

A lone survivor has been found three days after a plane crash in the Bolivian jungle.

    All nine passengers and crew aboard an Aerocon Airlines flight from Santa Cruz to Trinidad were assumed dead when the plane crashed in the Bolivian jungle on Tuesday.

    But three days later, rescue officials found one of the passengers, injured but alive, near the crash site.

    Minor Vidal escaped from the wreckage and says he survived by drinking his own urine and water from a lagoon.

    Al Jazeera's Caroline Malone reports.
