Young Boys Walk Home After School Mix-up
“It was a mix-up, and I am just wondering how did they lose a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old?” said Rakida Brown, the boys’ mother.
Lisabeth Marziello, the CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia, spoke to 6 ABC Thursday.
“Our staff walk to Wister Elementary School daily, to walk kids from the school to the Club so they are safe,” Marziello said. “When our staff were walking out of the auditorium they noticed the two boys following the group- when they got outside in front of the school, the two boys walked away from the group onto the playground. Our staff immediately walked over to the boys and asked them if they were supposed to be with the Boys & Girls Club. The Boys said ‘No’. Still in front of the school- our staff walked the Boys back into the school and into the auditorium with the school staff and where they would be safe. We never took the kids nor did we remove them from the property- our staff actually tried to stop the kids from leaving- and brought them back into the school where they belonged.”
