When it comes to dealing with unique events, individuals are very adept at it. History demonstrates this.
Police keep neighborhoods secure, while firefighters and paramedics ensure that any accidents cause as little damage as possible.
When faced with adversity, communities become extremely close. Still, a personal touch is occasionally required.
Beth Campbell’s lack of judgment sparked some news that drove the entire community into a frenzy in rural Kentucky.
An unexpected hero stepped in as the large community of volunteers, firefighters, and police were about to give up.
Charlee was dressed in bright blue pajamas with pictures of characters from the Disney film Frozen, and she wandered off from the property on Winding Hollow Lane at 10 a.m., during her grandmother’s vulnerable moment.
To make matters worse, the property was surrounded by woods, fields, and hills, making it impossible to find a newborn.
Penny, the family’s pit bull, had also strayed from the property. That’s when her mother called the cops.
Because nothing brings a small community together like a desperate emergency, police officers, firefighters, and a large number of volunteers banded together to find the missing couple.
Eric and Leanne Wilson, two locals who had never met Charlee, stepped in anyway. ‘What if that child was ours?’ According to Eric Wilson. ‘We’d want anyone who might be able to assist us to come out and find our child.’
Donnie Tinnell, the Sheriff of Bullitt County, said detectives are planning to ‘backtrack’ alternative paths Charlee could’ve gone more than 30 hours after Beth reported her missing.
But before they could, Beth, who had been praying at home, noticed something through the window. Penny was running toward the grieving woman.
Even though the pit bull didn’t have Charlee by her side, Beth felt relieved. Beth had no idea, but just as Penny arrived at her door, a neighbor a few blocks away, Wayne Brown, received a surprise guest of his own.
Charlee strolled onto Wayne’s back porch while still dressed in her Frozen jammies! After giving her some water, the man called the authorities, who took her to the nearest hospital.
The Campbells began putting the story together after going to the hospital to greet Charlee with her favorite stuffed animal.
However, the reunion would not have been possible without the assistance of a brave dog. Penny, the family’s pitie, guarded Charlee throughout her absence.
Together, they made it through the tick-infested undergrowth and the July heat until Penny led Charlee home.
’Right here is our hero,’ Beth added. ‘Charlee is our life, and everything revolves around her.’ I simply cannot picture my life without her, and I do not wish to.’
