WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Early Sunday morning Wilmington Police got a call about a 4-year-old boy who managed to walk out of his daycare, but the daycare’s owner says there is more to the story.
Hasi Burns has owned and operated All My Children for nearly 5 years.
Burns did not want to talk to us on camera, but she said she is still shaken up.
Around 1:00am Sunday, Burns says she and another staff member were working the overnight shift when a child slipped out the front door.
Burns says the other teacher tried to chase after the child, but that the little boy was running too fast for her to catch him.
According to WPD a utility crew saw the child running, caught him and brought him back to the daycare.
Police say the daycare did nothing wrong, but the Department of Social Services was notified.
