One of life's greatest nightmares is when a beloved pet suddenly goes missing. Gaspar, a 2-year-old dachshund, was traveling with Ligia Gallardo, his owner Janis' best friend when he escaped from a plane's cargo hold. This incident left Gaspar wandering the Atacama Desert in Chile for six days.
Thankfully, the airline and a local army unit reportedly provided vehicles and personnel to help with the search. Gaspar was found in a weak and frail state, but is now recovering and gaining weight. Talk about a miracle rescue!
