Little Remy Elliott, a three year-old from Missouri, was rescued and back in her mother's loving arms after getting lost in a cornfield for almost 12 hours.
She wandered into the cornfield in the early evening and couldn't find her way out. Her beloved dog, named "Fat Health", kept her safe and calm during the harrowing ordeal. He stayed by her side all night.
A search party of nearly 100 people, scoured the area for hours. Search volunteer Makayla Hardcastle said, "The corn feels like razor blades cutting you, especially for a child, and you don’t hear well in the corn either, so when somebody is yelling your name you can hear them but you don’t know where it is coming from.”
Ultimately, Remy's uncle found his niece about a half-mile away from her home, nestled in the tall rows of corn. She was fast asleep and covered in mosquito bites. Remy told her mom she wasn't scared because Fat Health was with her.
