3-yr old survives three days lost in TX woods

"Kids 6 and younger have a better outcome being lost in the woods than kids 7 to 12 do," McKee said.

He said studies have shown that younger kids are less likely to worry about some of the little things they might encounter in those situations.

"They worry less about (if) the water looks bad or smells bad or maybe bugs are over in the log I am huddling by to stay out of the wind. They are more concerned about meeting that immediate physical need. Whereas when kids get older, they start to process things a little bit more and start to think about things a little bit more," McKee said.'

Basically, the "Don't worry. Be happy." method of survival.  :eek1: Thankfully it had a happy ending!
