The survivor, a 27-year-old, was rescued late Sunday night and is uninjured but suffering from post traumatic stress and hypothermia.

His companions died of their injuries after the three potholers were discovered alive on Saturday morning.

The deceased were Gustavo Virues, 41, Jose Antonio Martinez, also 41, and the survivor is Juan Bolivar, 27.

They were reported missing on Tuesday after getting separated from the rest of their group and found themselves trapped in a 400m-deep ravine.
