SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A car pulled up to the San Francisco Zoo and abandoned a 5-year-old child Monday night, police said.

The child was dropped off on the side of the road near the intersection of Great Highway and Sloat Boulevard around 8:30 p.m., according to police.

An ambulance just happened to be driving by and stopped to help the child.

Officers said the child did not appear to be hurt.

They are now looking for the car’s occupants.

Witnesses say a woman was driving with a man in the passenger’s seat and, possibly, another baby in the backseat.

  1. Sure, they should be prosecuted for child abandonment, but they should never, ever get that kid back. (They probably told him they were taking him to the zoo, and of course he thought they meant like normal people take kids to the zoo and not the way they really meant it.)

    1. What a horrible, scary experience for a child. They should be prosecuted.
