According to the Independent53-year-old Frank Reynolds was attempting to roundup a cow and calf on his neighbour’s property in Wyoming when the ATV he was driving flipped and ended up on top of him, pinning him to the ground.

“It was scary as hell is what it was,” Reynolds told local news reporters.

Reynolds’ family initially assumed that he had gone camping or was with friends, but became concerned when they learned he had just been planning to do some work on his neighbour’s property.

As a search began around 2pm, Frank Reynolds was repeatedly honking the horn of the ATV – so much so that the vehicle’s battery ran out – but still he had not been found.

Three hours later, his family filed a missing persons report.

“The country out there was so rough that the search party, originally on four-wheelers, had to turn back and saddle up horses,” Sheriff Scott Matheny said, adding that Reynolds had been able to ration a few beers and bottled water from a cooler.

“He’s really lucky that the drinks landed within reach of his right arm,” Reynolds’ brother said.

The 53-year-old was pinned underneath his ATV when he inadvertently reversed down a a steep embankment, where he was left trapped for two nights and a day.

Meanwhile, footage captured the incredible moment a man caught a fall ball while holding his baby and a beer.
