A wildfire caught hold of a 12-year-old and his grandmother near Lysons, Oregon. As per a report by KOIN, a family member confirmed that the boy was Wyatt Tofte. Tofte ran away from his home as the Santiam Canyon approached. It is reported that the volunteers were looking for him since Tuesday.
A famous amusement park by the name of Enchanted Forest confirmed via a Facebook post that the boy was, in fact, the great-grandson of the founder of the amusement park.
We are devastated to confirm that Wyatt Tofte has not survived. He was found a short while ago. Wyatt was Roger’s…
A report has also confirmed that the boy’s mother is also in very critical condition, as reported by Wyatt’s cousin.
On Wednesday, the Sherrif’s Office declared a search and rescue mission after being reported about a missing boy and his dog. The crew searched through debris. There, they found the body of a boy and a dog in a vehicle. A second victim was also found.
Surprisingly, the mother, Angela Mosso told Wyatt to run away with the dog. In spite of this, it is said that he went to some distance and returned back home to get his grandmother. The locals are surprised at the courage of the little boy. Chris Tofte, the father, directed the team to find Wyatt.
“This could be the greatest loss of property and life in our state history,” said the Governor.
