Missing 2-Year Old MN Boy Drove His Toy Tractor to County Fair
His "license" was promptly revoked.
A missing two-year old Minnesota boy was found safe after driving his toy tractor to the Chisago County Fair.
A Facebook post by the Chisago County Sheriff's Office shares that their first call of the fair concerned a missing two-year old boy.
According to WCCO, the boy had been playing in his front yard just blocks from the fairgrounds when he decided to hop on his electric tractor and drive it to the fair. Noticing him alone, some women brought him to the attention of police about the same time police got a report of a missing toddler.
According to the Facebook post, "he was reunited with Dad who promptly suspended his son's license by removing the battery from it."
The comments have been almost entirely supportive and hilarious, prompting some to share similar stories of their own.
"I crossed a four lane highway on my tricycle in Waipahu, Hawaii when I was 2 or 3, little Red tricycle, Dad rescued me..."
"I did do the same when I was 3 or 4, I wanted to visit Grandma about 10 blocks away. Mom said no. I used the tricycle to reach Grandma's house. Grandma was shocked. LOL."
" I legitimately was this kid in 1984. I just ended up at my cousin's elementary school and checked every window until I found him. One of my earliest memories. Toy tractor too, but human powered."
