Lo que Ustedes hicieron deja más que claro que la unión hace la fuerza, que Dios existe y aún en la más extrema de la adversidades. Siento mucho admiración y respeto por cada uno de Ustedes, los que viven y los que se fueron que sin duda dejaron un gran testimonio. Feliz año a todos y que Dios alargue aún más sus días en este mundo. Quien les quiere y admira de todo corazón : Aldo Valdebenito desde Chile

Everybody, i need your help. I have somewhat of a mystery on my hands, and hopefully on your hands. I need some hard to come by imformation. If you know anything regarding Roberto Cannessas where abouts i would gladly like you to tell me. There will be a reward for any one who can help me. Please help me i am desperate. He owes me money. We made a bet that his plane wouldnt make it over the andes and he won. I paid him but i have recently found resources telling me that he purposely caused the plane to go down in order to win this bet. You obviously know I am in the right here so any answers would be much thanked for. May Allah bless you.

La verdad es que no hay palabras para describir todo lo que acontecio a este grupo de Seres Humanos que estuvieron dia a dia luchando por sobrevivir, por salir adelante y nunca perder la Fe, lo que hicieron estos Señores es una demostracion de como podemos siempre salir adelante aun en los momentos mas dificiles y la parte mas dificil de todo esto es volver y adaptarse de nuevo a la vida diaria y vivir desde ese momento que volvieron, marcados para siempre como partes de un milagro que ocurrio en esa parte de los Andes, Le doy gracias a mi Dios Gran Arquitecto del Universo, de haberme dado la dicha de poder en esta vida, ver un ejemplo de una Lucha por salir adelante, aun en las condiciones mas adversas.

Viven, they live, ils vivent, sie leben, vivono, они живут , leven, ζω, eles vivem, 그들은 살n다, 彼らは住んでいる, cada quien en su lengua podra gritarlo con toda la fuerza que da la vida y que permite a cada quien expresarse de forma diferente. Las palabras no podran descifrar nunca las visicitudes acaecidas duramente en las monstruosas y heladas montañas andinas. Gracias por vivir y servir de motivacion y fortaleza a mucha gente en todo el mundo que en determinado momento perdio las ganas de vivir. Ustedes son un ejemplo de la humanidad.

Thursday 12th : The Fairchild F-227 takes off from Carrasco and lands in Mendoza. - See Passengers List Friday 13th : They take off from Mendoza and crash in the Andes mountains. Thirteen passengers die in the crash. Three more passengers die during the night. Saturday 14th : They realise that one of Vizintín’s arms bleeds and stop the bleeding. Co-pilot Dante Lagurara is found dead and at midday Mrs Mariani dies too. Sunday 15th : Adolfo Strauch invents a device which turns snow into water. Fernando Parrado regains consciousness and takes care of his sister Susana, who is in a critical condition. Shortly after midday, they see three planes which continue their way. Soon after that, another plane passes very close to the Fairchild remains and move its wings, this make survivors believe to be seen by it. They think rescue will come any minute now, but nothing happens that day. Later that afternoon the team captain Marcelo Perez finds out that the food they were rationing has been eaten by somebody. Monday 16th : Canessa makes hammocks for the wounded which are used by Rafael Echevarren and Arturo Nogueira. Fito Strauch finds out that if they tie the cushions to their feet, they don’t sink into the snow. Tuesday 17th : Carlos Paéz, Turcatti, Canessa y Fito Strauch start walking into the Mountains’ direction to look for the plane’s tail, and to see what’s on the other side of it. Strauch sinks in a crevice but their partners rescue him. Being very tired they decide to go back without having found anything. Saturday 21st : Susana Parrado dies in her brother’s arms. Sunday 22nd : They hold a meeting inside the plane and decide to use the dead bodies to feed themselves on them since there are no vegetables or other type of food in the mountain and their supplies are running out. It is Canessa who takes the initiative, although some of them refuse to do it. Monday 23rd : They hear on the Fairchild’s radio that the rescue service has stopped Search and Rescue due to the bad results obtained. Turcatti, Maspons and Zerbino climb the mountain following the trail of the slide that the plane left on the snow. They decide to spend the night on the mountain and continue the following day. Tuesday 24th : They continue ascension and find pieces of a wing, the dead body of one of their friends, three members of the “Old Christians” and two members of the crew. Finally they go back to the plane without having found the tail. Sunday 29th : In the evening, when the survivors prepare themselves to spend another night in the plane’s fuselage, an avalanche slides down the mountain and bursts into the Fairchild, burying the people who were lying there on its way. Those who can get out, try to help out the ones who are still buried under the snow. This night eight people die under the snow, remaining up to this moment, 19 survivors. Daniel Maspons Juan Carlos Menéndez Liliana Methol Gustavo Nicolich Marcelo Pérez Enrique Platero Carlos Roque Diego Storm Monday 30th : Numa Turcatti’s birthday is celebrated inside the plane because they can’t go out due to the storm and the snow layer, which buried the fuselage on the avalanche. Tuesday 31st : Carlos Páez’ birthday is celebrated in the same way as Numa Turcatti’s. NOVEMBER, 1972 Wednesday 1st : As the weather conditions improve they improve the plane. It’s Pancho Delgado’s birthday. On the subsequent days there is good weather so they can, with the shovels made by them, take out the snow from the fuselage, and take out the dead bodies as well. François and Inciarte climb 100 metres up the mountain and turn back. Few days after that Turcatti and Algorta climb until they reach the plane’s wing. Sunday 5th : Páez, Harley y Vizintín go for a two days exploratory expedition. The plan consisted in go down the valley to test the mental and physical conditions of each member of the expedition and then select one to go with Canessa and Parrado in the final expedition. There they find the rear door of the plane, two aluminium pots and other recipient with coffee leftovers. The way back turns out to be almost impossible to do. They arrive at the plane remains after the sunset. Finally, in spite of Harley and Páez’ suffering during the expedition, Vizintín is selected to go with Parrado and Canessa. Wednesday 15th : Arturo Nogueira dies due to his leg injuries that had swollen. The three members of the expedition try to depart to the west but they are back after three hours due to the weather conditions. Friday 17th : Parrado, Canessa and Vizintín depart to the west with the intention of getting to Chile. They find the tail of the plane in their way, and around it they find many suitcases with food, clothes and cartons of cigarettes. Inside the tail they find the batteries. This night they sleep in the tail, in better conditions that in the plane fuselage. Saturday 18th : The three members of the expedition continue their way to the Norwest and decide to spend the night in the mountain. Meanwhile, Rafael Echevarren dies in the plane. Sunday 19th : They go back to the tail and decide not to take the batteries to the plane because they are too heavy, but to take the radio to the tail. From there they return to the Fairchild remains, where their partners were, taking what they found in the suitcases with them. Thursday 23rd : It’s Bobby François birthday, his partners give him a packet of cigarettes. Canessa and Parrado pull the radio out of the plane’s panel. Friday 24th : Vizintín, Canessa, Parrado and Harley go towards the plane tail, taking the radio with them. Harley is the one who must try to make it work. It takes them one hour and a half to get there. They find more suitcases that appeared after snow melting. Saturday 25th : They try to connect the radio to the batteries, but in all the attempts fail. Sunday 26th : Parrado and Vizintín go back to the plane because the food they took was running out. Harley and Canessa stay in the tail trying to make the radio work. Tuesday 28th : Parrado and Vizintín return to the tail with more provisions. They hear on the transistor radio that the search would be resumed by C-47 of the Uruguayan Air Force. Wednesday 29th : The four, (Harley, Canessa, Vizintín and Parrado) return to the plane without having made the radio work. DECEMBER, 1972 Saturday 9th : It’s Parrado’s birthday, his partners give him a Havana which was in the tail. Monday 11th : They make a big cross in the snow with the suitcases to be made out by the plane pilots. Numa Turcatti, good friend of Pancho Delgado, dies this day. Tuesday 12th : Canessa, Parrado and Vizintín set off on the last expedition to the west to find the Chilean Valleys. That night they sleep next to a big rock and in their sleeping bags, which they have previously made.- Wednesday 13th : Canessa finds out a trail along the valley, which makes him believe that it is a road. He doesn’t say anything and they continue climbing. In the afternoon they reach a place similar to the one they had slept in the previous night and decide to stay there. Canessa comments about the road and creates a discussion. He for his part was thinking of coming back and going to that place, while Parrado considered it was a crazy idea. They finally go to bed without having reached a conclusion. Meanwhile in the plane, Zerbino and Fito went up to get some dead bodies because they were running out of provisions. They find one but they leave it many metres away from the plane because they felt tired. Thursday 14th : Vizintín and Parrado continue the climb to the summit, while Canessa remains where they had slept gazing at what he thinks is the road. Finally Parrado manages to reach the summit of the mountain and when looking over to the other side he finds an endless mountain range. That day they decide that Vizintín should leave his food portion and go back to the Fairchild so that the food could last longer more for Canessa and Parrado, and they could keep walking until finding signs of civilisation in Chile. They spend the night in the same place they had been the day before. In the plane Páez and Algorta climb through the valley in search for more bodies. They come across one and cover it with snow to prevent it from getting sun rotten. Friday 15th : In the morning the 13 people who stayed in the plane realised that something was sliding across the mountain. Firstly they thought it was a rock, but then they were able to catch sight of Vizintín, who was using one of the plane seats as a sledge. On arriving he explains to all of them that Canessa and Parrado would continue to Chile and that he had left them his food portion. That day Fito, Zerbino y Algorta go to get the body they had found the previous day. When coming back they are told that their partners had heard on the radio that the suitcase cross they built had been seen by a Uruguayan C-47. Saturday 16th : Canessa and Parrado continue the climbing to the peak, where Parrado had already been. It took them three hours to reach it, and there they tried to find the best way to go down. In the afternoon, having walked down a good stretch, they get ready to sleep. Sunday 17th : The survivors who stayed in the plane hear on the radio that the cross found by the C-47 was the one done by a group of Argentinean meteorologists. At midday Parrado and Canessa manage to get to the mountain base and keep going through the valley that they had previously agreed to follow, when they were on the summit. In one of the stops they did, in order to rest, they see a little stream and near it they find moss and reeds. It was the first sign of vegetation they had seen since the accident’s day. Canessa, in spite of his being tired, went on to get some herbs and he ate them. Monday 18th : They keep their hike through the valley. Parrado gets impatient to see what is at the end of the path and starts to walk faster, leaving Canessa many metres behind. Finally the snow valley ends and what they see is extraordinary, since there is no snow but lots of flowers, bushes and a river flowing to the west. There they see animals, rest quite a while and then continue toward the right side of the river. A little later Canessa notices he had lost his sun glasses, so he must return and look for them, because due to the sun reflex on the snow he could go blind. Then they were obliged to cross the torrent to continue their way. Finally they dispose themselves to spend the best night since they left the plane. Tuesday 19th : That day, in the morning, Canessa sees a herd of cows, which encourages them to keep walking. Further on they find the first sign of civilisation, an empty can of soup. Then they find a horseshoe. Later on they see some fell trees and the cows again, which ensured the presence of civilisation. They go to sleep afterwards being sure of their salvation. Wednesday 20th : They wake up and don’t see the cows. They get rid of the things they think won’t be necessary any more, like the sleeping bags. They keep walking trough the valley, but this time they don’t find more signs of civilisation, and this make them become alarmed. Canessa starts to feel sick, so Parrado has to carry both rucksacks. Finally they reach a place in where they see a farmyard with stone walls and a door. They spend the night next to some trees, near that place. Before sleep, Parrado notices that the river they were following joins with other river, which blocks them the way. When he goes to get some firewood, Canessa makes out a man riding a horse on the other side of the river and starts shouting at Parrado to make him go to meet the rider, since he couldn’t walk. Parrado runs to the river looking for the rider, but as he doesn’t see him he goes back with Canessa, who has also lost him of sight. They hear a scream, and this time they see three men standing on the other side of the river. Both of them shout desperately for help and make plead gestures. One of the men approaches the river and shouts something, but the only thing Canessa and Parrado could make out from it was “tomorrow”. They finally go to sleep feeling happy about the previous event. Thursday 21st : In the plane, Carlos Páez and Daniel Fernandez have the feeling that the two members of the expedition got to Chile and found help. That morning Parrado and Canessa see the three men next to the hut. Parrado approaches the river and shout to them. One of them goes down the river and writes in a paper that he has sent a man to see them and to see what they want. After writing that he wraps a stone in the paper and throws it to Parrado. He writes back: “I come from a plane that crashed in the mountains. I’m Uruguayan. We’ve been walking for ten days. I have an injured friend up in the valley. There are 14 injured people in the plane. We have to get out of here soon and we don’t know how. We have no more food. We’re weak. When are you going to come for us up here?. Please we can’t even walk. Where are we?.” When finishes writing, he uses the same method to throw the paper back. The man reads it and shows that he has understood their problem. Before going, he throws a bread to the other side of the river and Parrado gets it. Few hours later, a man gets riding to the place where Parrado and Canessa were. They briefly explained their adventure to him, he gives them some bread and takes them to the hut, where they eat relentlessly. Once there, and with the third rider, the natives explain them that the man who had found them went to take their letter to the customs officers. In the afternoon a group of customs officers together with Sergio Catalan, the man who found them, arrive. The labourers’ boss ask Santiago three helicopters for the other survivors rescue. That day the people who was still in the plane tune in the radio and the first thing they heard was the news that a labourer had found two survivors of the Uruguayan plane lost on the last 13th October. Friday 22nd : When Parrado and Canessa wake up in the labourers’ hut, they find it’s foggy, which disappoint them because in those conditions the rescue couldn’t be taken on. After breakfast they meet with a crowd of journalists from all over the world. They answer with pleasure to all their questions except the ones referring to their feeding, which they tried to avoid. Later, the helicopters arrive to Los Maitenes (place where they were). Parrado decides to go in one of them to indicate the way. The way to the Fairchild remains was hard, but they get, with a big effort, to pass the mountain which leads to the valley where the plane was. There they found the other 14 survivors, who waved their arms to the helicopters and thank the mountains for the rescue. That day 6 survivors were rescued by helicopter, while the others remained at the same place with the medical team and some Andinists, because due to the weather it was dangerous to come back with helicopters. When the 6 rescued people land in Los Maitenes, it’s all joy. The survivors hug each other and roll about the grass, celebrating their salvation. Some hours later they are taken to San Fernando’s hospital “San Juan de Dios”. Saturday 23rd : At ten in the morning the helicopters come back to pick up the other 8 survivors remaining at the plane. They arrive at Los Maitenes, where the party of the previous day repeated once again. Then they go to the Colchagua regiment and finally they land at a roof of a hospital of the National Health Service called “Posta Central“ in Santiago. Inciarte and Mangino, who were in “San Fernando” go to the “Posta Central” too, while the other 6 go directly into the “Sheraton”. The doctors don’t allow Harley and Methol go there because of their health conditions. Finally the four injured were put together in a room. At seven in the evening all the survivors, but Harley, Methol, Inciarte, and Mangino, meet at San Cristobal’s Sheraton. Sunday 24th : The 4 injured meet the others at the Sheraton. That day François and Daniel Fernández go back to Montevideo. In the night the rest of the survivors celebrate Christmas. Tuesday 26th : Parrado moves to a house in Viña del Mar. Algorta goes to a house in the outskirts of Santiago. “El mercurio”, a newspaper from Santiago, publishes a photograph in the front page mentioning the cannibalism. In view of this, the survivors felt obliged to celebrate a press conference on their arrival in Montevideo. Wednesday 28th : The survivors arrive at Montevideo and celebrate a press conference in which they explain everything they have went through during the 70 days. Harley remains in Chile because he is still very weak, although few days later he goes back to Montevideo. anomynous - anomynous anomynous 1/4/2005 5:13:16 PM On the 18th January of 1973, 27 days after the survivors rescue, a patrol made up by many members of the Andinian Help Corps and a Chilean priest, were taken by helicopter to the Fairchild remains. There, few metres away from the plane, they set up camp with the idea of spending there some days. They gathered all the body remains, that were round the Fairchild and the mountain, together. 80 metres away from the plane they found an area, which seemed to be out of avalanche risks and it also had enough land as to dig a grave. They dug a big hole helped with shovels and picks. There they buried the accident victims. Near the grave they built up a rustic stone altar with an orange iron cross above it, in which lies the inscription “EL MUNDO A SUS HERMANOS URUGUAYOS” (the world to its Uruguayan brothers) on one side and “CERCA, OH DIOS DE TI” (close, oh God, to you) on the other. In the end, the priest celebrated Mass and said a sermon to the people present. Later the Andinists went back to the Fairchild remains, sprayed it with gasoline and set it on fire. They decided that their work had finished, and encouraged by the threatening noise of the avalanches they agreed to live the place. anomynious - anomynious anomynious 1/4/2005 5:05:35 PM poop tastes good!!! smelly poop - milkfart@hotmail.com burgundy 1/4/2005 5:02:07 PM im jesse hillsbury im fat and i go to centennial high in boise idaho usa i am in tenth grade come rape me Jesse Hillsb - jessesfat@urmom.com usa 1/4/2005 4:52:48 PM Everybody, i need your help.

Thursday 12th : The Fairchild F-227 takes off from Carrasco and lands in Mendoza. - See Passengers List Friday 13th : They take off from Mendoza and crash in the Andes mountains. Thirteen passengers die in the crash. Three more passengers die during the night. Saturday 14th : They realise that one of Vizintín’s arms bleeds and stop the bleeding. Co-pilot Dante Lagurara is found dead and at midday Mrs Mariani dies too. Sunday 15th : Adolfo Strauch invents a device which turns snow into water. Fernando Parrado regains consciousness and takes care of his sister Susana, who is in a critical condition. Shortly after midday, they see three planes which continue their way. Soon after that, another plane passes very close to the Fairchild remains and move its wings, this make survivors believe to be seen by it. They think rescue will come any minute now, but nothing happens that day. Later that afternoon the team captain Marcelo Perez finds out that the food they were rationing has been eaten by somebody. Monday 16th : Canessa makes hammocks for the wounded which are used by Rafael Echevarren and Arturo Nogueira. Fito Strauch finds out that if they tie the cushions to their feet, they don’t sink into the snow. Tuesday 17th : Carlos Paéz, Turcatti, Canessa y Fito Strauch start walking into the Mountains’ direction to look for the plane’s tail, and to see what’s on the other side of it. Strauch sinks in a crevice but their partners rescue him. Being very tired they decide to go back without having found anything. Saturday 21st : Susana Parrado dies in her brother’s arms. Sunday 22nd : They hold a meeting inside the plane and decide to use the dead bodies to feed themselves on them since there are no vegetables or other type of food in the mountain and their supplies are running out. It is Canessa who takes the initiative, although some of them refuse to do it. Monday 23rd : They hear on the Fairchild’s radio that the rescue service has stopped Search and Rescue due to the bad results obtained. Turcatti, Maspons and Zerbino climb the mountain following the trail of the slide that the plane left on the snow. They decide to spend the night on the mountain and continue the following day. Tuesday 24th : They continue ascension and find pieces of a wing, the dead body of one of their friends, three members of the “Old Christians” and two members of the crew. Finally they go back to the plane without having found the tail. Sunday 29th : In the evening, when the survivors prepare themselves to spend another night in the plane’s fuselage, an avalanche slides down the mountain and bursts into the Fairchild, burying the people who were lying there on its way. Those who can get out, try to help out the ones who are still buried under the snow. This night eight people die under the snow, remaining up to this moment, 19 survivors. Daniel Maspons Juan Carlos Menéndez Liliana Methol Gustavo Nicolich Marcelo Pérez Enrique Platero Carlos Roque Diego Storm Monday 30th : Numa Turcatti’s birthday is celebrated inside the plane because they can’t go out due to the storm and the snow layer, which buried the fuselage on the avalanche. Tuesday 31st : Carlos Páez’ birthday is celebrated in the same way as Numa Turcatti’s. NOVEMBER, 1972 Wednesday 1st : As the weather conditions improve they improve the plane. It’s Pancho Delgado’s birthday. On the subsequent days there is good weather so they can, with the shovels made by them, take out the snow from the fuselage, and take out the dead bodies as well. François and Inciarte climb 100 metres up the mountain and turn back. Few days after that Turcatti and Algorta climb until they reach the plane’s wing. Sunday 5th : Páez, Harley y Vizintín go for a two days exploratory expedition. The plan consisted in go down the valley to test the mental and physical conditions of each member of the expedition and then select one to go with Canessa and Parrado in the final expedition. There they find the rear door of the plane, two aluminium pots and other recipient with coffee leftovers. The way back turns out to be almost impossible to do. They arrive at the plane remains after the sunset. Finally, in spite of Harley and Páez’ suffering during the expedition, Vizintín is selected to go with Parrado and Canessa. Wednesday 15th : Arturo Nogueira dies due to his leg injuries that had swollen. The three members of the expedition try to depart to the west but they are back after three hours due to the weather conditions. Friday 17th : Parrado, Canessa and Vizintín depart to the west with the intention of getting to Chile. They find the tail of the plane in their way, and around it they find many suitcases with food, clothes and cartons of cigarettes. Inside the tail they find the batteries. This night they sleep in the tail, in better conditions that in the plane fuselage. Saturday 18th : The three members of the expedition continue their way to the Norwest and decide to spend the night in the mountain. Meanwhile, Rafael Echevarren dies in the plane. Sunday 19th : They go back to the tail and decide not to take the batteries to the plane because they are too heavy, but to take the radio to the tail. From there they return to the Fairchild remains, where their partners were, taking what they found in the suitcases with them. Thursday 23rd : It’s Bobby François birthday, his partners give him a packet of cigarettes. Canessa and Parrado pull the radio out of the plane’s panel. Friday 24th : Vizintín, Canessa, Parrado and Harley go towards the plane tail, taking the radio with them. Harley is the one who must try to make it work. It takes them one hour and a half to get there. They find more suitcases that appeared after snow melting. Saturday 25th : They try to connect the radio to the batteries, but in all the attempts fail. Sunday 26th : Parrado and Vizintín go back to the plane because the food they took was running out. Harley and Canessa stay in the tail trying to make the radio work. Tuesday 28th : Parrado and Vizintín return to the tail with more provisions. They hear on the transistor radio that the search would be resumed by C-47 of the Uruguayan Air Force. Wednesday 29th : The four, (Harley, Canessa, Vizintín and Parrado) return to the plane without having made the radio work. DECEMBER, 1972 Saturday 9th : It’s Parrado’s birthday, his partners give him a Havana which was in the tail. Monday 11th : They make a big cross in the snow with the suitcases to be made out by the plane pilots. Numa Turcatti, good friend of Pancho Delgado, dies this day. Tuesday 12th : Canessa, Parrado and Vizintín set off on the last expedition to the west to find the Chilean Valleys. That night they sleep next to a big rock and in their sleeping bags, which they have previously made.- Wednesday 13th : Canessa finds out a trail along the valley, which makes him believe that it is a road. He doesn’t say anything and they continue climbing. In the afternoon they reach a place similar to the one they had slept in the previous night and decide to stay there. Canessa comments about the road and creates a discussion. He for his part was thinking of coming back and going to that place, while Parrado considered it was a crazy idea. They finally go to bed without having reached a conclusion. Meanwhile in the plane, Zerbino and Fito went up to get some dead bodies because they were running out of provisions. They find one but they leave it many metres away from the plane because they felt tired. Thursday 14th : Vizintín and Parrado continue the climb to the summit, while Canessa remains where they had slept gazing at what he thinks is the road. Finally Parrado manages to reach the summit of the mountain and when looking over to the other side he finds an endless mountain range. That day they decide that Vizintín should leave his food portion and go back to the Fairchild so that the food could last longer more for Canessa and Parrado, and they could keep walking until finding signs of civilisation in Chile. They spend the night in the same place they had been the day before. In the plane Páez and Algorta climb through the valley in search for more bodies. They come across one and cover it with snow to prevent it from getting sun rotten. Friday 15th : In the morning the 13 people who stayed in the plane realised that something was sliding across the mountain. Firstly they thought it was a rock, but then they were able to catch sight of Vizintín, who was using one of the plane seats as a sledge. On arriving he explains to all of them that Canessa and Parrado would continue to Chile and that he had left them his food portion. That day Fito, Zerbino y Algorta go to get the body they had found the previous day. When coming back they are told that their partners had heard on the radio that the suitcase cross they built had been seen by a Uruguayan C-47. Saturday 16th : Canessa and Parrado continue the climbing to the peak, where Parrado had already been. It took them three hours to reach it, and there they tried to find the best way to go down. In the afternoon, having walked down a good stretch, they get ready to sleep. Sunday 17th : The survivors who stayed in the plane hear on the radio that the cross found by the C-47 was the one done by a group of Argentinean meteorologists. At midday Parrado and Canessa manage to get to the mountain base and keep going through the valley that they had previously agreed to follow, when they were on the summit. In one of the stops they did, in order to rest, they see a little stream and near it they find moss and reeds. It was the first sign of vegetation they had seen since the accident’s day. Canessa, in spite of his being tired, went on to get some herbs and he ate them. Monday 18th : They keep their hike through the valley. Parrado gets impatient to see what is at the end of the path and starts to walk faster, leaving Canessa many metres behind. Finally the snow valley ends and what they see is extraordinary, since there is no snow but lots of flowers, bushes and a river flowing to the west. There they see animals, rest quite a while and then continue toward the right side of the river. A little later Canessa notices he had lost his sun glasses, so he must return and look for them, because due to the sun reflex on the snow he could go blind. Then they were obliged to cross the torrent to continue their way. Finally they dispose themselves to spend the best night since they left the plane. Tuesday 19th : That day, in the morning, Canessa sees a herd of cows, which encourages them to keep walking. Further on they find the first sign of civilisation, an empty can of soup. Then they find a horseshoe. Later on they see some fell trees and the cows again, which ensured the presence of civilisation. They go to sleep afterwards being sure of their salvation. Wednesday 20th : They wake up and don’t see the cows. They get rid of the things they think won’t be necessary any more, like the sleeping bags. They keep walking trough the valley, but this time they don’t find more signs of civilisation, and this make them become alarmed. Canessa starts to feel sick, so Parrado has to carry both rucksacks. Finally they reach a place in where they see a farmyard with stone walls and a door. They spend the night next to some trees, near that place. Before sleep, Parrado notices that the river they were following joins with other river, which blocks them the way. When he goes to get some firewood, Canessa makes out a man riding a horse on the other side of the river and starts shouting at Parrado to make him go to meet the rider, since he couldn’t walk. Parrado runs to the river looking for the rider, but as he doesn’t see him he goes back with Canessa, who has also lost him of sight. They hear a scream, and this time they see three men standing on the other side of the river. Both of them shout desperately for help and make plead gestures. One of the men approaches the river and shouts something, but the only thing Canessa and Parrado could make out from it was “tomorrow”. They finally go to sleep feeling happy about the previous event. Thursday 21st : In the plane, Carlos Páez and Daniel Fernandez have the feeling that the two members of the expedition got to Chile and found help. That morning Parrado and Canessa see the three men next to the hut. Parrado approaches the river and shout to them. One of them goes down the river and writes in a paper that he has sent a man to see them and to see what they want. After writing that he wraps a stone in the paper and throws it to Parrado. He writes back: “I come from a plane that crashed in the mountains. I’m Uruguayan. We’ve been walking for ten days. I have an injured friend up in the valley. There are 14 injured people in the plane. We have to get out of here soon and we don’t know how. We have no more food. We’re weak. When are you going to come for us up here?. Please we can’t even walk. Where are we?.” When finishes writing, he uses the same method to throw the paper back. The man reads it and shows that he has understood their problem. Before going, he throws a bread to the other side of the river and Parrado gets it. Few hours later, a man gets riding to the place where Parrado and Canessa were. They briefly explained their adventure to him, he gives them some bread and takes them to the hut, where they eat relentlessly. Once there, and with the third rider, the natives explain them that the man who had found them went to take their letter to the customs officers. In the afternoon a group of customs officers together with Sergio Catalan, the man who found them, arrive. The labourers’ boss ask Santiago three helicopters for the other survivors rescue. That day the people who was still in the plane tune in the radio and the first thing they heard was the news that a labourer had found two survivors of the Uruguayan plane lost on the last 13th October. Friday 22nd : When Parrado and Canessa wake up in the labourers’ hut, they find it’s foggy, which disappoint them because in those conditions the rescue couldn’t be taken on. After breakfast they meet with a crowd of journalists from all over the world. They answer with pleasure to all their questions except the ones referring to their feeding, which they tried to avoid. Later, the helicopters arrive to Los Maitenes (place where they were). Parrado decides to go in one of them to indicate the way. The way to the Fairchild remains was hard, but they get, with a big effort, to pass the mountain which leads to the valley where the plane was. There they found the other 14 survivors, who waved their arms to the helicopters and thank the mountains for the rescue. That day 6 survivors were rescued by helicopter, while the others remained at the same place with the medical team and some Andinists, because due to the weather it was dangerous to come back with helicopters. When the 6 rescued people land in Los Maitenes, it’s all joy. The survivors hug each other and roll about the grass, celebrating their salvation. Some hours later they are taken to San Fernando’s hospital “San Juan de Dios”. Saturday 23rd : At ten in the morning the helicopters come back to pick up the other 8 survivors remaining at the plane. They arrive at Los Maitenes, where the party of the previous day repeated once again. Then they go to the Colchagua regiment and finally they land at a roof of a hospital of the National Health Service called “Posta Central“ in Santiago. Inciarte and Mangino, who were in “San Fernando” go to the “Posta Central” too, while the other 6 go directly into the “Sheraton”. The doctors don’t allow Harley and Methol go there because of their health conditions. Finally the four injured were put together in a room. At seven in the evening all the survivors, but Harley, Methol, Inciarte, and Mangino, meet at San Cristobal’s Sheraton. Sunday 24th : The 4 injured meet the others at the Sheraton. That day François and Daniel Fernández go back to Montevideo. In the night the rest of the survivors celebrate Christmas. Tuesday 26th : Parrado moves to a house in Viña del Mar. Algorta goes to a house in the outskirts of Santiago. “El mercurio”, a newspaper from Santiago, publishes a photograph in the front page mentioning the cannibalism. In view of this, the survivors felt obliged to celebrate a press conference on their arrival in Montevideo. Wednesday 28th : The survivors arrive at Montevideo and celebrate a press conference in which they explain everything they have went through during the 70 days. Harley remains in Chile because he is still very weak, although few days later he goes back to Montevideo.

On the 18th January of 1973, 27 days after the survivors rescue, a patrol made up by many members of the Andinian Help Corps and a Chilean priest, were taken by helicopter to the Fairchild remains. There, few metres away from the plane, they set up camp with the idea of spending there some days. They gathered all the body remains, that were round the Fairchild and the mountain, together. 80 metres away from the plane they found an area, which seemed to be out of avalanche risks and it also had enough land as to dig a grave. They dug a big hole helped with shovels and picks. There they buried the accident victims. Near the grave they built up a rustic stone altar with an orange iron cross above it, in which lies the inscription “EL MUNDO A SUS HERMANOS URUGUAYOS” (the world to its Uruguayan brothers) on one side and “CERCA, OH DIOS DE TI” (close, oh God, to you) on the other. In the end, the priest celebrated Mass and said a sermon to the people present. Later the Andinists went back to the Fairchild remains, sprayed it with gasoline and set it on fire. They decided that their work had finished, and encouraged by the threatening noise of the avalanches they agreed to live the place.

Everybody, i need your help. I have somewhat of a mystery on my hands, and hopefully on your hands. I need some hard to come by imformation. If you know anything regarding Roberto Cannessas where abouts i would gladly like you to tell me. There will be a reward for any one who can help me. Please help me i am desperate. He owes me money. We made a bet that his plane wouldnt make it over the andes and he won. I paid him but i have recently found resources telling me that he purposely caused the plane to go down in order to win this bet. You obviously know I am in the right here so any answers would be much thanked for. May Budha bless you.
