Toddler left in day care van found wandering on NY street

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old boy left alone in a day care van has been found wandering on a New York street.

Police tell local media in Rochester that the boy was picked up around 8 a.m. Monday and fell asleep in a back seat of the van. Two workers unloaded the other children but apparently forgot about the toddler.

The workers then drove away with the boy still strapped into his seat and parked the van.

Police say the boy awoke and got out of the van. A motorist spotted him at around 11 a.m., pulled over and called 911.

The boy was treated at a hospital and released.

The two workers have been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
