Youngster found wandering street

A three-year-old boy left alone in a day care van has been found wandering on a New York street.

Police said that the boy was picked up at around 8am on 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 am, 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.
