Langford three-year-old takes off on an adventure

Toddler returned home safe after spotted by concerned neighbour

West Shore RCMP are reminding parents to properly child proof their homes after one Langford three-year took off on an adventure early Friday morning.

Just after 6 a.m. a member of the Canadian Forces was getting into his car when he found the toddler going for a stroll, wearing nothing but a diaper. He brought the toddler into his home and contacted the West Shore RCMP.

Members of the local detachment were able to determine the toddler’s residence, which happened to be a few doors down. When they arrived at the home they found the garage open but knocks on the door went unanswered.

The toddler’s parents were given quite the surprise when officers woke them, returning their child.

Officers determined this was an unfortunate case of an adept toddler escape artist.

“We would like to use this as a reminder to parents to properly child proof your residences,” said Const. Alex Bérubé, West Shore RCMP spokesperson, in a release. “Luckily, the toddler was not harmed.”
