His son had been missing for six weeks in the Amazon rain forest.
After the government called of the search, he continued.
He searched far and wide, saving little time for rest.
He found his boy, alive--but barely. The young man was lying beside a riverbed. He was dehydrated, starving, and covered in insects and insect bites.
When the father brushed the insects aside and tried to revive his offspring, the young man simply "[g]ritted his teeth, and died."
How's that for an un-Hollywood ending?
