The White House is the most protected facility in the world, but that didn’t stop a toddler from sneaking onto the grounds Thursday night.

Secret Service agents say a toddler squeezed through the White House fence at about 8:10 p.m., alarming security personnel who quickly returned the youngster to his parents.

He will not be questioned in connection with the incident.

“We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that, he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents,” said Edwin Donovan, Secret Service spokesman.
