In Novy Urengoy, a two-year-old boy ran away from kindergarten. While the frightened teachers were looking for him, the preschool child managed to reach his yard.
The incident took place on September 25 in the "Gnezdyshko" kindergarten. The recruits kindergarteners walked under the supervision of three teachers. They returned back in parts: first, one teacher brought the children into the building, the rest was brought in by her colleague. As a result, they did not notice how the two-year-old slipped under the transport gate. The child was immediately grabbed when the teachers counted the children in the locker room.
The tomboy, meanwhile, easily covered the distance of almost 500 meters, reached the yard next to the garden, where his house is located. There, a passer-by drew attention to the confused boy, who called the police.
- Having missed the child, the teachers immediately rushed to find him. The cameraman on duty told them that she saw where the baby was headed. They took him from another site, - said the kindergarten "Gnezdyshko" Klara Grigorieva.
It is worth noting that all preschool children started going to the garden only from September 3, and the boy's escape happened just during the adaptation period.
