Coral Gables officer finds toddler walking alone in Little Havana street
Police reunite boy with grandmother
MIAMI – A toddler was only wearing a diaper when an officer found him wandering along a busy Miami street barefoot on a cold Thursday afternoon.
Coral Gables Police Department Sgt. Velier Zaccheo was driving along West Flagler Street near Northwest 24th Court in Miami's Little Havana when a woman pointed to the little boy.
Zaccheo stopped to investigate. A video shared on social media shows that when Zaccheo picked up the boy and held him, the boy leaned his head on the officer's shoulder.
Officer Kenia Fallat, a spokeswoman for the Miami Police Department, said Miami officers later learned the boy had snuck out of his grandmother's house. The officers decided no one was at fault.
