A two-year-old girl was miraculously found in a field by a search volunteer two days after she vanished from her great-grandparents’ home in Ohio,
Hundreds of volunteers joined the desperate search for Rainn Peterson at the weekend. But just as hope was fading, volunteer Victor Sutton found her - cold and wet - asleep in a field of tall grass just half a mile from her great-grandparents’ home.
“I found baby Rainn and she's alive!” he said in a 911 call.
You can hear the baby crying in the just-released 911 call. “You're okay, sweetheart. I swear you're going to be okay,” the man is heard saying.
“Oh, I just got goosebumps,” said the dispatcher.
“Oh my God, me too. I couldn't give up on this kid. Thank God!” said the volunteer.
“It's really impossible to describe the emotion unless you were there,” said Sheriff's Deputy Dario Poledica, among the first on the scene.
“I cried. I cried and laughed at the same time. I broke every rule on the radio and shouted, ‘It is her! She's alive!’” he said.
A photo was taken just minutes after she was found in her soaking wet clothes. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital, but she is going to be fine.
