  Jevy had a plan. There was an army base on the edge of Corumbá. When the sky cleared, Nate carefully unpacked the satellite phone and turned on the power. The signal was strong, and Marco and his family gathered around. He wondered if they'd ever seen a phone.

  Jevy called a friend who found phone numbers. He then explained the situation to an army officer and asked for help. After all, they had had a plane crash. Finally, the commander himself came to the phone. He and Jevy traded army talk for five minutes--places they'd been to, people they knew--then Jevy explained what had happened.

  "No problem. A helicopter is ready. Give us an hour," the commander said.Miltonsmiled for the first time that day.

  An hour passed. The sun was dropping quickly in the west; dusk was approaching. The army would not be able to rescue them at night.

  杰维想到了一个主意。在科伦巴郊区有一个军事基地。当天空放晴,尼特小心翼翼的取出了卫星电话,开机,信号非常好,马尔科一家聚在周围,他怀疑他们根本没见过电话这种东西。

  杰维先打给一个朋友帮忙查到了电话号码,然后他打电话给一个基地的长官解释了他们目前的困境以寻求帮助,毕竟,他们是刚经历了一场空难。最后,指挥官亲自接了电话,他们聊了五分钟的军旅话题——去过哪些地方、见过哪些人什么的——然后杰维向他说明了事情的经过。

  “没问题,直升机随时可以出发,一个小时之后就到。”指挥官说。米尔顿这天第一次露出了笑容。

  一个小时转眼就过去了,很快,太阳西沉,暮色降临,直到晚上军队都没有来营救他们。
