    A boy missing in remote woods in Japan since Saturday after being left alone by his parents as punishment has been found alive and well.

    Seven-year-old Yamato Tanooka was found in a military training base near Shikabe in Hokkaido, just a few kilometers from where he was left.

    His parents initially said he had got lost, but eventually admitted briefly abandoning him for being naughty.

    His father has apologized to his son and rescuers, saying "we went too far".

    I'm calling it: they're gonna make a manga based on him - SURVIVAL KID.

    WTF kind of parenting is that. Poor guy, he'll have that story to tell for the rest of his life.

    God... can't even begin to imagine what was going through their heads. What a terrible mindset for a parent to have.

    Makes me happy that mine weren't as strict as average Russian families are, although I get that the two cultures are wildly different from each other. Anyway glad that kid is safe. :P

    Same to be honest. Probably because it is just so un heard of to leave your child in a bear infested wood.

    I honestly wouldn't even be surprised. They make manga based off of everything

    I bet I'll be criticized for this but...
    This is a gaming forum, not a lost & found child forum.

    It's careless and stupid to do that. If I was heavily drunk I wouldn't do something like that.
