MX-10 locate a missing 9 year old boy

Date: 2018-03-08

Watch as the Tuscarawas County Sheriff's Office and Ohio State Highway Patrol Aviation locate a missing 9-year-old boy

Searchers found the boy asleep in the snow in the woods on a hillside, several hundred yards away from his home. Ohio Highway Patrol officers in a helicopter equipped with a thermal imaging viewer located the boy, who was wet and very cold, Campbell said.

“Without the aid of this helicopter, he likely would not have survived being in the cold and wet snow several more hours,” the sheriff said. “When you’re extremely cold, you get tired and fall asleep. The helicopter hovered above him and that noise didn’t awaken him, so he might never have awakened again if we didn’t find him.”
