Mother, rescuers describe finding missing boy in Aus

Three-year-old Anthony 'AJ' Elfalak was rescued by Australian emergency services on Monday (September 6), after which he was taken to a hospital and was reported to have suffered some scrapes from a fall and a nappy rash.

It was unclear why the boy had wandered away from his parents' home on Friday (September 3).

Video footage released by New South Wales police had shown the boy desperately scooping water into his mouth in a creek in Putty, around 150 km (93 miles) northwest of Sydney, just before being rescued.
