Circumstances:
The twin engine aircraft was performing a taxi flight from Nuquí to Quibdo with one pilot and two passengers on board, an 18 years old woman and her son aged 8 months. En route, the contact was lost with the pilot and the aircraft at 1256LT when it crashed in a jungle located east of Nuquí. The wreckage was located four days later only and the pilot was killed. As both passengers were not found at the accident site, SAR operations were conducted and they were eventually found few hours later, walking in the jungle. It was a miracle as the woman was slightly injured and the baby was unhurt. They were evacuated to the nearest hospital for treatment.
