Four children have been found alive after surviving a plane crash and spending weeks fending for themselves in Colombia’s Amazon jungle.

Colombia’s president, Gustavo Petro said the rescue of the siblings, aged 13, nine, four, and one, was a joy for the whole country.

The children’s mother and two pilots were killed when their light aircraft crashed in the jungle on 1 May.

The missing children became the focus of a huge rescue operation involving dozens of soldiers and local people.

President Gustavo Petro said finding the group was a “magical day,” adding that they were alone and achieved an example of total survival which will remain in history.
