Lost Alabama Hunter Spends 3 Days in a Hole
19 year old Alabama resident Wesley Weaver went missing Wednesday evening after he headed out hunting. His father, Scott Weaver never gave up hope while trying to find his son. Scott said there were highs and lows during the three days, but he never gave up hope.
Wesley had fallen into a deep hole and was stuck. Officers said that with hurricanes and storms that have gone through knocking over trees, there are some holes that could swallow cars. Wesley had a dog lead with him and he used it to pull himself out. He kept throwing it out of the hole until it finally hooked something strong enough, that he could anchor it on to and pull himself up and out. Once out he fell asleep. Dozens of searchers were out looking for him, during the three day ordeal. Brylon Goodman spotted him on Sunday afternoon.
"We come back through, saw somebody on the road that looked like Wesley. I didn't know if it was him or not so we turned back around and it was him," Goodman said.
Wesley was dehydrated, but other than that in good shape. His grandfather joked that they don't want Wesley going out hunting anytime soon. The hole is being searched for, so it can be covered up. From Fox10Tv.com.
