Toddlers leave daycare, wander near busy road
Several children 2 to 3 years old, were unsupervised when they were seen wandering along a busy North Carolina road Tues- day, police say. Six toddlers had wandered away from their daycare at Winston-Salem’s Pinedale Christian Church, and five of them were near or on a road where the speed limit is 55 mph, WGHP reported. Two motorists and a police officer stopped along the side of the highway when they saw the children, and safely returned them to the church. They escorted the toddlers back into the building, after finding the sixth child “trapped between two doors.” The three adults working at the daycare did not know the children had been missing, according to one of the motorists, the Winston-Salem Journal reported. “They could have been abducted. They could have been run over,” said Angie Herman, one of the drivers who stopped to help the children.
