Turkey call helps child rescue lost dog

A sixth-grader, a snowstorm and a lost dog combined to make for an amazing rescue story.

It all happened in Dundee, New York, in the Finger Lakes region.

Maggie, a lab-springer mix, ran away during a snowstorm the day after Christmas.

What made things worse is that the 17-year-old pooch has trouble walking, seeing and hearing.

But somehow, Maggie managed to hear a turkey call from sixth-grader Austin Gibson.

The call roused Maggie from a snow bank, and other than being pretty cold, the dog is okay.

Maggie's owner says it's a miracle.
