Tod­dlers leave day­care, wan­der near busy road

Tampa Bay Times - - Nation & World -

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.
