Tokyo: Miracles do happen and an instance to it is the rescue story of a 7-year-old Yamato Tanooka who has been found alive from dense forest area after six days. Military personnel rescued the boy from inside a wooden hut in Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island.

Tanooka was immediately rushed to the hospital where doctors said that he luckily sustained only cuts and was not in a state of panic.

The doctors said, "He was incredibly calm considering he had been missing for seven days. He didn't panic at all."

In the last six days, the forest observed heavy rainfall following which the temperature of the area dropped to 7 degree Celsius but the child miraculously survived.

Military personnel said, “He was hungry and thirsty. We offered him rice balls and bread to eat after which he introduced himself as Yamato Tanooka.”

Tanooka’s parents said that they made him get out of the car to punish him for misbehaving. They, then got busy in gathering vegetables and found him missing from the spot.
