PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A bus driver negotiating a busy Gresham intersection Friday spotted a toddler wearing only diaper and T-shirt.

The child had gotten out of his apartment after his mother left for work and his father slept after a late shift.

The driver stopped and stayed with the boy until police and a social worker arrived. The social worker took the boy into temporary custody until he could be reunited with his parents two hours later.

The Oregon Court of Appeals ruled on a similar situation in March, saying the parents of a wandering toddler were not at fault criminally after their child managed to get outside.
