Then, around 9 o'clock on Tuesday, two volunteers heard giggling about a mile away from where he had disappeared.

When the rescuers reached the toddler, & # 39; the hole he was standing in was literally as deep as he was & # 39 ;, she added. & # 39; They could only see his head. & # 39;

Courtlund was examined in a hospital, where luckily he found nothing but a case of sunburn, a few scratches, and several mosquito bites, Moat added.

& # 39; He was honestly just exhausted and didn't really know what had happened, & # 39; Moat said Canadian press.

& # 39; He saw them before they actually saw him, & # 39; she said. & # 39; He saw their horses and started giggling because he wanted to stroke the horses. & # 39;

The mother also said: & # 39; We had all the technology we could possibly have been looking for, and if it had not been for the locals on foot, on horseback or on quads, we would not have found it. & # 39;
