(Scroll down for video) Police went out in search for a mother after her toddler boarded a bus by himself.
The surveillance video from the bus, which shows the toddler boarding alone, has gone viral. The incident occurred in Changsha, Hunan, China.
A woman attempted to board the bus when she spotted the toddler crawling up the stairs. She and other passengers became alarmed, and they tried to locate the child’s parents.
However, when there was no adult around, the bus driver refused to continue on his way. Another bus arrived and passengers were urged to use the next bus.
However, many people chose to stay on the bus and volunteered to help care for the child until his mother was located.
Police were finally able to locate the child’s mother, who was surprisingly relaxed and not worried about the entire incident.
The mother, who was home at the time, said that her son was playing by the doorway and she did not pay attention.
However, the mother had no idea that her son had boarded the bus until police arrived.
