A 25-year-old man named Maykool Coroseo Acuña was on a tour of a rainforest in the Amazon when he wandered off from the camp where the group was staying.
Amazingly, he was in the wild, lost, for nine days before he was found alive by guides.
Maykool said that he was able to survive because he followed a group of monkeys around out there. The monkeys dropped him fruit and led him to shelter and water every day.
Of course, Maykool was in rough shape when he was found, with many insect bites and swollen feet and ankles. But, his mind was working just fine as he maintained hope of a rescue the entire time, thanks to the friendly troop of monkeys. (National Geographic)
