The Cub Scout leader tells the troop the history of the mine and the scouts decide to explore it.
While in the mine... "Suddenly one of the other three scouts in Josh's group cried out, 'I can't see anything! I can't see even with the light. I'm night blind. Get me out of here!' Terry could hear that the scout was close to panic." (Lewis 118-199)
DO NOT ENTER
Josh's dad Terry leaves him with the older kids while he helps the frightened scout. Then Josh gets abandoned as the other kids walk out of the cave.
Where did everybody go?!?!
We are so happy to see you Josh!!! How did you survive?
Hey guys! Where's Josh?
We thought he was with you!
When the older kids and Josh's dad meet outside the cave they all realized Josh was missing.
After a few days of looking for Josh, his dad researches to find the perfect team to rescue his son.
About John Skinner... "He had explored Hidden Treasure some 110 times and knew each crevice and bend. He realized that he was the best person to find Joshua." (Lewis 122)
best rescue teams
John Skinner was a mine historian. He knew he would be able to find josh with the help of his team.
Are we all ready to find Josh?
And then, after hearing a sound..."John and the other men scrambled toward the direction of the call. John's heart skipped. Could it be Josh? Could he still be alive and able to call out?" (Lewis 123)
I just HOPED and it worked!!!!
Josh's parents were VERY happy to see Josh after being in him a mine for five days.
