While mum Maria was suffering from some burns and a few injuries she was in good health as was her baby , the pair were found on Monday three days after pilot Carlos Mario Ceballos was found dead in the wreckage , judging by the picture below it's amazing anyone survived.

A team of 14 people had scoured the rainforest attempting to find them.

"It's a miracle. It is a very wild area and it was a catastrophic accident," Colonel Hector Carrascal of the Colombian Air Force told AFP news agency.
Of the baby, he said: "His mother's spirit must have given him strength to survive."
The couple were airlifted to a hospital in Quibdo
