There's two dead in baggage.

- Please!

- Stay with Felipe.

- Easy, ma'am, easy.

- My legs!

Yes, ma'am,

I'm sorry about your legs.

- Roy, are you hurt?

- I don't know.

Come on, then. Help me. Come on.

Take the other side.

One, two, three!

- Alberto.

- Dead.

I'm not dead. Never felt worse

in my life but I am not dead.

All right. Let's move this stuff.

Be careful! Both my legs are broken.

How's Nando?

I don't think so.

Maybe it's just as well.

His mother's dead.

- Please.

- Other people are hurt.

- I'll stay with you.

- Thank you.

- Got a minute?

- What, Pablo?

It's this. Is it serious?

- Forget it. You're OK.

- You think so?

Don't worry. Give a hand

with this seat over here. Come on.

Here. Tie it up

and I'll see to it later.


Mama! Mama, I want to go home!

I want to go home!

Sit her down here.

- You better see the pilot.

- OK. Help me move her.

- One more try, Mrs Alfonsin.

- No, don't! You'll kill me!

Let them do it, ma'am.

They've got to do it.

Maybe we shouldn't.

One, two, three, pull!

- Stop! Stop! Stop!

- We're going to kill her!

- I gotta stop.

- This is horrible!

- All right!

- Don't touch it!

- Let's make some room in here.

- Watch his leg.

Water. Water.

- Hand me some snow.

- Here.

Where's the radio?

We should call Santiago.

We passed Curico. We passed Curico.

- My friend, the radio...

- My bag.

- How do we call Santiago?

- 11... 300.

I got the dial. 11, 300.


- It's dead. There's no power at all.

- My bag.

- He wants his bag.

- There isn't much. I don't see it.

We're looking. What's in it?

My gun. My gun.

No, my friend,

we can't be a part of that.

Put this up on that side.

My hands are freezing!

Well, it's too late.

The rescuers will never see us today.

- We'll have to spend the night.
