This Haitian migrant recounts in some detail the perils he and many others faced while crossing the Darien Gap jungle, where he nearly gave up and died. He is grateful to a good Samaritan who shared an electrolyte beverage to help him overcome dehydration, and encouraged him to continue on. Despite his own physical setbacks and feelings of discouragement upon seeing others get swept away by the river, he summoned the will to get through.
