SACRAMENTO – A toddler is home with his family after he was found wandering the street alone Thursday morning.
Good Samaritan, Chantelle Gordon, saw the boy and came to his rescue. She was in her car on El Monte Ave. and Arden Way around 9 a.m. when she spotted the toddler.
"Black t-shirt, pamper, no shoes," Gordon described. "Pretty grungy looking."
Gordon, a mother of two, immediately stopped once she realized he was alone.
"Anything could have happened," Gordon said. "He could have been hit by a car, a stranger could have picked him up."
She knocked on doors looking to take him home. She reached a neighbor who knew the child and called police.
It turns out that the toddler, named Amir, lives in a home on Arden Way. He'd wandered at least 100 feet before Gordon found him.
