The Good News Is... Boy gets to keep his fossil

GOLDSBORO, NC (WBTV) - A pint-sized Indiana Jones is getting a lot of attention.

A boy from the eastern North Carolina town of Goldsboro has made a "whale" of a discovery.

10-year-old Greg Williams was playing in a neighborhood creek when he stumbled across a fossilized whale vertibrae. It's more than four million years old.

Greg says he was looking at some rocks when he found it, and his mom thought it belonged to a cow.

They took the fossil to a nearby museum. The museum says it's not a rare find, but it is interesting.

Greg is going to keep the fossil.
