Lost Tourist Survives Nine Days in the Jungle, Says Monkeys Helped | National Geographic ctm magazine

Could you survive nine days in the rainforest alone? Maykool Coroseo Acuña did after he wandered away from his campsite in Bolivia’s Madidi National Park. Rangers and guides searched for eight to ten hours per day for a week, and after nine days in the jungle, Maykool was found less than a mile from the campground. He was dehydrated, and had bug bites, botflies, and spines stuck in his skin. He says a group of monkeys dropped fruit and led him to shelter and water every day.

    Animals helped him even though we make fun of them, displace them, hurt them, skin them, kill them and eat them? Be caring, forgiving and grateful for the nature and all it's living inhabitants, go vegan!

    Reject Humanitee become Monkee

  • Femto on May 30, 2021

    The guides stated he refused so take part in a ceremony to honor the rainforest and a spirit made him run into the forest. It all sounded bs to me too until they heard his testimony… bro said he didn’t know why he did what he did. The locals say a spirit makes people do this called the dwende or something. Only after 9 nights of prayers by Local tribal leaders did he survive his ordeal. Crazy but I believe it after listening to his testimony after the fact.
