BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) - Police say a Baker City woman may have saved the life of a 16-month-old boy who was wandering alone.

Police Chief Wyn Lohner told the Baker City Herald (https://is.gd/jp6qMQ ) that 41-year-old Alison Carpenter was chatting with a friend Sunday when the pair noticed the boy on the other side of the street.

The chief says Carpenter ran to stop the boy from stepping into an intersection as a truck approached.

The boy’s mother was charged with child neglect, and a man at the mother’s home was charged with violating the terms of his probation on a theft conviction.

The boy has been placed in the care of his grandparents.
