Father And Son Lived In Jungle For 42 Years

After his wife and two other children were killed by bomb near their home in Vietnam in 1973, Ho Van Thanh grabbed his son and ran into the jungle.  A few days ago, some nearby villagers trekked 25 miles into the jungle looking for firewood and found 82-year-old Thanh and his son living 20 feet up in a treehouse. They hunted with homemade bows and arrows, ate cassava roots, fruits, and corn they cultivated.  The new Discovery series should start any day now.
