How Did a 10-Month-Old Baby Crawl Onto Busy New Jersey Road?

The photo of a baby crawling across a road, mom or dad nowhere to be seen, is shocking America. The photo was taken by a passing motorist who slammed on his brakes and jumped out to save the 10-month-old.

How did the baby get onto this stretch of road in Lakewood, New Jersey, in the first place? Where were the parents? Police believe the child crawled out of a door left open by a sibling, with the parents “unaware that he had left.”

Child Welfare Services are investigating.
