SOT, Andrey Peskov, Father of Dima Peskov, (Russian): "Guy, thank you, I'm the father!"

SOT, Pavel Carpenko, Volunteer, Sokol searching squad, (Russian): "This can happen to everyone!"

A four-year-old boy who had been missing for nearly five days in a forest inhabited by bears, has been found alive. Footage released on Thursday shows the child, Dima Peskov, being transported by rescuers from the central Russian Sverdlovsk region near the Ural Mountains to a hospital in Ekaterinburg.

A man who volunteered to search for Dima, Pavel Carpenko, described how he found the boy lying in in the woods. "I started to shout into the radio: "He is here!", then we began to evacuate him", he explained, adding, "I began to tremble, literally". Dima's father Andrey was at the scene, and thanked the rescuers for their work.

Dima is now currently in intensive care, after being heavily bitten by mosquitos and mites. During his time in the forest he ate grass and drank water from the swamp. The search for the boy lasted four days and involved over 500 people.

Dima was chopping wood with his father when he fell tired and asked to return to the tent where they were camping. The boy was not able to find his way back and became lost.
