Uruguay Trekker Lost 4 Months In Andes Found Alive

Argentina authorities say a 58-year-old man from Uruguay has been found in good health after he was lost for four months in the Andes. Raul Fernando Gomez was found after losing 45 pounds. He is being treated at a hospital.

Gomez has been reported missing in May while trying to ride his bicycle across the Andes between Chile and Argentina, officials say. Gomez told authorities he lived off sugar and raisins he had on him, along with food cached in mountain shelters. Gomez also said he ate rats.
