Pre-K Student Escapes School and Walks Across Highway

A Mayflower Pre-K student slipped out of school Tuesday and crossed a busy highway.

Luckily a good Samaritan driving by, stopped and waited with the little girl until faculty from Mayflower Elementary caught up with her.

The school's principal tells channel 7 that the student had been placed in a conference room because of multiple behavioral problems during the day.

But when a teacher turned his back on the girl she somehow escaped the building.

District officials are reviewing school safety protocols because of the incident and may add more exterior alarms.
