Tserin Dopchut survived alone in the Siberian woods, which is home to wolves and bears, for three days. When he was found he had a bar of chocolate in his pocket and had made himself a little bed under a tree. He's three.

Little Tserin is believed to have followed a puppy into the forest when his great-grandmother's back was tuned and then got lost.

Russian police, as well as his family, started searching for the toddler, who has been nicknamed Mowgli after The Jungle Book character, even using a police helicopter to get a better view of the area.

Fortunately, his uncle discovered him after Tserin had spent a shocking 72 hours in the woods. As well as the threat from wolves and bears, Tserin would have had to endure extremely cold conditions at night and watch out for the fast flowing river that snakes through the woods.

Regional emergencies chief Ayas Saryglar told the Siberian Times: "Of course, the situation was very dangerous. The River Mynas is fast and cold. If a small child fell in, it would be certain death.

"There are wolves, and bears in the forest. The bears are now fattening for the winter. They can attack anything that moves. In addition, it is warm during the day, but at night there are even frosts. If we consider that the kid disappeared during the day, he was not properly dressed - only a shirt and shoes, no coat."

Best of all, doctors have checked Tserin over and say he's fine and suffered no injuries during his adventure. His village now plans to throw him a welcome home party.
