MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A piglet that survived a semi crash near Dayton last week now has a forever home.

Authorities estimated up to 1,100 piglets may have died when the semitrailer carrying 2,200 piglets overturned on an Ohio highway June 8. Many more were rounded up, but others escaped into the woods.

This piglet apparently had been trapped on the wreckage after the crash and got loose when the truck was towed.

His wounds were treated, and on Friday he was taken to the Sunrise Sanctuary in Marysville, northwest of Columbus, where he will live out the rest of his days. Sunrise provides safe haven for over 170 previously abused, neglected, disabled and otherwise unwanted animals.

The lucky little pig has been named Nathan.
