5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy home safe after vanishing from Brooklyn school
LEFFERTS GARDENS (WABC) -- A 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy is safe at home Monday night after vanishing from his school in Brooklyn.
Malikh Nelson is a kindergartener at Lefferts Gardens Charter School. Last week, he was allegedly left unattended and wandered out a side door to look for his bus matron.
A total stranger found Malikh and walked him 11 blocks to his home. Meanwhile, his mother was panicked.
Malikh's mother is now suing New York City and the Department of Education for $5.5 million.
