A boy named josh Dennis and his dad went on a cub scout trip together to a mine. Josh was really excited and his dad was too. They had just set up tents because it was a overnight trip. There were different age groups in different scout troops and some teens had just gone in before josh and his dads group were.
I think I can help look for the boy. I know the mine very well.
when one of the cub scouts starts crying because he is scard of the dark, joshś dad takes him back thinking that josh is with the older boys. but he is not. when the older boys come out of the mine without him, joshś dad realized that he was still in there all alone. So he starts to call the police, friends, family, and more so they can help look for him.
There he is! In the last spot I thought he would be in!
Everyone from all over came to help. The police, friends, family, and more. Some workers from nearby companys came to. Even news reporters were there! It turns out that josh kept going without his dad and got lost. So many people were looking for him.
A man name John comes into the story. He used to work in the mine and he new it like the back of his hand. He tried to get in, but they would not let him. They said they had searched the whole thing and thought that he was lost outside of the cave. But john new he wasn´t and could not stop thinking about him. No matter how hard he tried.
After looking all over for josh, they were starting to think he was dead by now. But they finally let john in. John took a few worker with him. He had three spots in mine that e thought josh was at. But when they were going to the last spot, only two to three workers were left. They checked the spot and josh was there!
Josh was still alive but needed medical attention. When josh came out of the cave, he was surprised at all of the people there were. because it was so dark in the mine, josh did not know that he was in there for five days and still managed to survive. Josh once said that you could do anything and he did. that is how a kid named josh survived 5 days in a mine
