Puppies kept lost Alabama boy warm in woods, rescuer says

An Alabama man credits a dog and her four puppies for helping rescue a 10-year-old boy with Down syndrome who was lost in the woods for 18 hours.

“Those puppies kept him company, they kept him warm and comfortable,” Jamie Swinney of Hackleburg, Ala., told NBC News on Thursday. “We don’t know what would have happened to him had the puppies not been with him. And credit goes to the mother dog for leading me to the boy.”

Kyle Camp went missing from his home about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. After his family failed to locate the boy they called police for help about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to NBC station WAFF-TV.

Sheriff’s Department employees and a team of volunteers searched in the woods for the boy late into Tuesday night and resumed at first light on Wednesday. Volunteer Jamie Swinney followed the Camp family dog, who was searching for her puppies, who also went missing with the boy.

“I heard the dogs barking again and followed him down there and started hollering for the puppies and I hollered for him and he hollered back. He was in the creek about a half a mile over the ridge,” Swinney said.
