The Littleton, Colorado man survived 10 days in the remote Nevada desert by melting snow and using skills he learned as a Boy Scout, but the Lovelock, Nev., man he was traveling with has been found dead. Pershing County Sheriff Richard Machado says 76-year-old Klemovich was in good health near his vehicle when he was found Tuesday by military personnel holding training exercises in the area.

James Klemovich has diabetes, wears a pacemaker and had a triple bypass heart surgery, his wife said.
When the military personnel found Klemovich, they gave him a banana, two oranges and three boiled eggs.
Szabo, of Lovelock, Nev., was found dead about a mile and a half away. An autopsy is being performed.
James Klemovich is still in Nevada, waiting for the car to be recovered before returning home. He was treated and released from a hospital.
