Argentina Rescues 5 People Left Stranded in the Andes by Storm

BUENOS AIRES – Five people who spent four days stranded in the Andes after a storm were rescued Tuesday, authorities in the Argentine province of San Juan said.

“They were found safe and sound in a shelter in the place called Blanco, 70 kilometers (43 miles) from the town of Angualasto,” according to an official statement.

Police, park rangers and civil defense personnel collaborated in the operation to rescue the travelers, which required the use of a special all-terrain vehicle.

The five people got lost in the mountains after a rain and snow storm struck the area last Friday and decided to hole up at the shelter in Blanco.

The travelers were taken to the nearest town for medical exams, the official statement said.
