Boy disappears without a trace in woods, days later he’s found unscathed – survives thanks to dad’s trick

Nowadays, children spend most of their time in front of computers and tablets — and not much time in nature. It’s completely different from when I was growing up and my friends and I used to built forts in the woods. Yet thankfully, there are still some parents who teach their children survival skills, which might have made the difference between life and death if anything goes wrong when your child is alone in the woods.

This was exactly what happened to a 10-year-old boy named Malachi Bradley when he was walking with his family in the woods. He disappeared without a trace and his family was terrified. Days later, he was discovered, and miraculously, he was completely unharmed — thanks to a genius survival lesson his dad taught him. Now, the incredible story of how Malachi survived completely alone in the forest has gone viral on social media.
