June 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A dog is said to be in good health and happy to be returned to its owner after flying for twenty miles in a strong wind gust which swept the dog away during a storm.

Agnes Tamas, a 57 year old man from the Hungarian village of Gesztered renamed his dog ‘Lucky’ after he survived being swept away in the storm, according to ‘Photonews Agencia Noticiosa’. In a very surreal moment, the dog flew away during the storm, and was carried 20 miles before landing safely.

According to the account by Tamas, “I saw the roofs of the local houses being ripped off one by one, and I ran into my garden to try and get to the cellar. I couldn’t believe it when the dog house flew up into the air - complete with my dog cowering inside. It was like something out of the ‘Wizard Of Oz.’”

The dog was found after a local radio station made an appeal to citizens to be watching for the animal. Concerned citizen Kalman Csutor called the Red Cross and reported finding the dog after hearing the radio plea. “He was pretty shaken. I have no idea what happened to the dog house or whether the wind carried him all that way - but when I found him he was 20 miles from home.”
