Amazing Moment Helicopter Crew Finds Missing 3-Year-Old In Field

Rescue crews in the air and on the ground worked together to find a young child who had gone missing in an Ohio cornfield.

As anyone lucky enough to have become a parent will confirm, it is life’s greatest blessing. Children bring so much joy and happiness to a parent’s life. However, their inquisitive nature and penchant for exploration can cause parents to experience considerable anxiety and worry.

A clip posted on YouTube details the dread and fear 3-year-old Ilya’s parents experienced when they first discovered he was missing. However, that same video also displays the precise moment when the young man was found safe in the field. 

In the moments after young Ilya’s disappearance, his parents were understandably frightened and struck with overwhelming panic.

“It was unreal,” Bella Dunin said. “When I first heard that he was missing, I got so stressed that I think I went numb.”

But, as the video points out, Ilya’s parents reached out to the state police for help. Soon after they called the authorities, informing them of their missing child, 100 police and volunteers joined the search for the 3-year-old boy.

Thankfully, after searching for the young man for nearly three hours, Ilya had been spotted. A helicopter pilot located the young man in a beanfield. The clip details how the crews on the ground and in the air worked with one another. The pilot in the copter directed people on the ground right to the child’s location.

Thank the Lord! A potentially devastating disaster had been avoided.

After people on the ground reached the child, they gave the pilot a thumbs up, signaling the young man was OK.

There were no injuries to the child reported. But he had somehow managed to lose his shoes. He was also said to be “soaking wet,” according to the video.

Proverbs 22:6 “If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old, he will not be turned away from it.”
