Casey Hathaway, three years old, vanished in Ernul, North Carolina, the location of this tragedy. He left the house to play with his buddies and never returned. The youngster was not sufficiently dressed, and the weather got cold. A rescue crew quickly dispatched drones and planes to begin the search.
As the temperature plummeted even lower, rescuers advised volunteers to call it quits for their own safety. In the evening, the kid eventually began to cry. Casey was located soaked and chilly, but unharmed save for a few scrapes, among spiky plants.
Following that, the youngster revealed that he had a bear pal in the woods who supplied him with warmth and help. The child begged to be brought to his mother and requested a drink from the rescuers. He told his aunt the identical bear story, and she believed the child’s survival was the result of supernatural intervention.
Sheriff Chip Hughes later stated that the child had to walk through frigid water that was approximately shoulder-high for adults. It’s unknown how the child, who stands barely a meter tall, managed to swim there.
In this area, black bears, particularly the American black bear, are common. They’d prefer avoid humans than attack them.
