Grandfather ‘very sorry’ after accidentally picking up wrong child at school
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) — A 65-year-old Orangeburg County grandfather’s case of mistaken identity at an elementary school led to the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office to investigate the incident.
According to an incident report, the grandfather, identified as Joseph Fuller, went to Edisto Primary School to pick up his grandson early from school on May 19.
When the grandfather arrived, the report said, he noticed a group of students leaving the gymnasium and he spotted a young man who he thought was his grandson.
The report said the grandfather approached the boy, gave him a hug, and said he was there to pick him up early. He asked the boy, who he thought was his grandson, if he was ready to go and the little boy said “yes.” A teacher’s assistant told deputies that she asked the student, “Was this your granddad?” and the student said “yes.”
