Lost 2-Year-Old Rescued by Teen's Last-Minute Decision

A teenager going on a an impromptu jog in the woods ended up saving a toddler's life. On his way to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, 18-year-old Trevor Vetort stopped for a run at at J.W. Wells State Park near Cedar River, Michigan.
As Vetort ran alongside the trees separating the trail from the highway, he was shocked to see a 2-year-old boy sitting on the damp leaves and grass.

"I almost ran right up on him, then I heard him crying," says Vetort. "He wanted me to pick him up ... he was crying, 'Mommy.'"

Poor little guy! Apparently the toddler wandered almost a mile away from his home, where his mother and several other people were desperately searching the front yard for some sign of him. Police returned the boy to his mother after Vetort carried him over a mile to the park rangers' station. No one is sure yet how long he was lost in the woods, but the child was fully clothed and wearing his boots and a hat (his mother suspects he lost his coat in the forest somewhere; I believe it, knowing how much 2-year-olds love wearing coats).

Vetort missed class that day, but it worth it. Link -via Buzzfeed
