    Teen dies in dad's arms after Amazon ordeal
    Lost in rain forest for 6 weeks, student survives until father finds him

    updated 1:44 p.m. ET, Tues., July. 1, 2008

    RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil - A Brazilian student lost in the Amazon rain forest for six weeks was found by his father, only to die in his arms a short time later, rescue officials said on Tuesday.

    Jonathan dos Santos Alves, 18, had been lost in the forest since mid-May, when he became separated from two friends he was hunting with in an area 72 miles north of the city of Manaus.

    Fire and rescue department chief Antonio Dias dos Santos told Reuters he had been missing for 42 days.

    The official search was called off a month ago but his father, Edilson, continued looking with his brother and two other men. On Saturday, they found Jonathan lying next to a river, dehydrated, emaciated and covered in insect bites.

    'Gritted his teeth and died'
    "I held him in my arms and got the insects away from his mouth," his father, a 40-year-old farmer, was quoted as saying by the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper. "When I tried to revive him, he gritted his teeth and died."

    The son was found about 27 miles from where he went missing. Pictures from the scene showed rescuers using a helicopter to lift his body from a tree, where his father had placed it during the weekend to keep it from being eaten by animals.

                  My prayers to this man and his family. I'm not a father but I DON'T want to see my child die, especially like that. That poor kid suffered.

                      omg

                      I know this sounds weird but in a strange way Im glad he was with someone he knew and loved before he past. Being alone for 42 days and to have someone close to u finally probably brought him some comfort. Maybe he was just hanging on for that or something. I know its weird to say but i was just thinking that.

                      R.I.P.
