Dogs Refuse to Leave a 2-Year-Old Boy Lost in a Cornfield
By this point, who can doubt that dogs are man’s best friend? A 2-year-old boy named Mason from Richmond, Minnesota, was lost in a cornfield. The entire time he was there, waiting for rescue to arrive, his loyal dog stayed with him.
The Dogington Post reported the news saying that the “Minnesota boy is safe and sound today, thanks to the Minnesota State Patrol’s helicopter outfitted with a camera that detects heat signatures – and the boy’s loyal canine companion.”
According to Inside Edition: “Mason was playing outside his home with three young cousins when he wandered off straight into a cornfield” with the dog following behind. The toddler wandered off about 6:15 pm just when dusk was setting in.
Since the day was turning into night, relatives went into a frenzy looking for him but to no avail. They called Stearns County Sheriff’s Office and they immediately went looking for the missing boy With over 200 volunteers, including the police authorities and fire department, the search party urgently went on a hunt deploying the police helicopter to assist the group.
The helicopter hovered over the cornfield, picking up the “heat signature” of the missing boy along with that of the dog. Jerri Gertken, Mason’s grandmother said: “The dogs are very protective over the kid. She sat right next to him and she barked the whole time. It is completely, ‘dog saves boy.”
The boy went missing with his pet English Springer Spaniel named Bella Grace and the dog’s 12-week-old pup named Madeline. They wandered off the fields for more than three hours.
The video of the thermal vision was also shared online, where Bella Grace can be “seen wagging her tail as the cameras picked up on their trail.” She was protecting the toddler who was crying, scared and lost.
