On Thursday afternoon, a toddler was found wandering the streets of Crown Heights, and was thankfully brought to safety.
A man walking down Crown Street near Albany Avenue saw a young child wandering in the street, without shoes, in the freezing cold, all wet.
This kind man noticed the child, immediately picked him up and brought him into Lubavitch Yeshiva, assuming it was a student from there.
The staff at Lubavitch Yeshiva informed him that he was not a student of the school, so he immediately called Shmira.
Shmira put the word out about the child, and within minutes the parent was located.
The child had been at his playgroup, and a mother had left the door opened, which allowed the child to leave the location.
Thank G-d, miraculously, no harm came to the child while he was wandering alone, and the family is grateful to the man who stopped and saved the child from any harm.
Please, please mothers and caretakers, double check the doors all the time. B”h this ended safely.
