Argentine authorities have rescued a 58-year-old Uruguayan man who had been lost in the Andes mountains since May. Raul Gomez Cincunegui was spotted at the Sardina mountain shelter on Sunday, at an altitude of some 4,500 meters (nearly 15,000 feet) in the Los Patos Sur valley. Police then transferred him by helicopter to a hospital in the eponymous capital of western San Juan province. "It's a miracle," San Juan Governor Jose Luis Gioja said. Rawson Hospital chief of operations Victor Olmos said Gomez was recovering in the intensive care unit but was "only dehydrated" and otherwise in good health. He also had signs of malnutrition. Gomez survived feeding on sugar and raisins he had with him, as well as food stored in mountain shelters, according to a police report.
