What Happened at This Allen, TX Daycare?

The lawsuit filed by this North Texas mother paints a distressing picture of her son's incident. The WFAA article shares how, despite being entrusted to the care of Safari Kid Allen, the toddler was able to wander out of the facility unnoticed. The child's rescue from near a busy road was made possible thanks to the timely intervention of a vigilant good Samaritan—an employee at the nearby Kwik Kar auto shop—who acted swiftly to ensure the child's safety. The sheer negligence displayed by the daycare staff, who remained oblivious to the child's absence until prompted by law enforcement to conduct a headcount, is deeply concerning.
