The Ouachita County Sheriff’s Office found a 3-year-old boy, who was wandering alone on a road in Camden, Arkansas. Сovered in scratches, he was exhausted and severely dehydrated, so th officers took care of him in the department. They posted his photo on Facebook with the hope to receive a response from people who might know him, as the toddler could barely speak.

Shortly, he was identified as Kylen Holliman by family members. They informed the police that his 25-year-old mother, Lisa Holliman, and her two sons hadn’t been in touch for a few days. The officers started searching the location where Kylen was found and stumbled onto the wrecked car hidden far from sight. They found the dead body of the young mother, who had been lying there for a few days. However, what amazed them most was that the 1-year-old was found in the car alive! The baby was still fastened to the car seat. Ouachita County Sheriff's Detective Lt. Nathan Greeley told KARK the boy was “was somewhat turned sideways, in a position upside down.” It was a miracle that those kids had survived the crash and the few days that followed without any water or food.

Their grandfather, James Hollison, said that it was hard to deal with such a terrible loss. Moreover, in the hospital, they found out that Lisa was 4-week pregnant. “We didn't know. We lost two,” he added in tears.

The sheriff assumed Kylen could get out of the car and wandered away up on the hill through the bushes. The officers found him 300 yards away from the accident. They believe that, if the toddler had stayed at the crash scene, the two boys would have had no chance of survival.

With Kylen’s help, they could rescue his baby brother. Greely admits that their mother's death is tragic, but it’s marvelous to see both children alive: “Today is anything but short of a miracle. The 3-year-old and 1-year-old being able to survive in the elements… Like I said, it's nothing short of a miracle.”

Well said, officer!
