A Magoffin County community is celebrating after a missing toddler was found clinging to a cliffside - dehydrated, but alive.
Police say little Kenneth Howard was found near a strip mine in Floyd County, which is on the border of Magoffin County. He was on a 50-foot, steep incline, 1,755 feet away from his home. They said crews found him when they heard him crying.
Crews were amazed that Kenneth got as far as he did, over such difficult terrain.
"Over terrain, I would not, in fact I can't, even as a young man I don't think I'd even attempt it," said an official. "That child is a true Kentucky mountain boy."
