Parents left their son in the woods as punishment. After a 7 day search he was found alive.

The parenting of a Japanese couple went awry when they left their 7-year-old son in the woods a week ago. He got lost in the mountains of Hokkaido. The parents initially did not admit that they left their son Tanooka alone in the woods. A massive search operation has been underway all week with hundreds of searchers.

Now reports come in from Japan that search crews have found the boy alive. Tanooka was found hiding at a Self-Defense Force base in the town of Shikabe, Hokkaido. He told his rescuers he had been sleeping on a mattress in a hut. It was unclear if he had eaten anything during the ordeal.

The father of Tanooka cknowledged to reporters on Friday that he had “gone too far” in leaving his son but insisted that he had meant the best for him according to a report on Japan Times.
