Employees from a hair salon in New Baltimore rescued a 2-year-old girl wearing nothing but a diaper from walking across a heavily congested portion of the 36000 block of 23 Mile Road on Thursday morning.
The were called just before 10 a.m. to do a health and safety check after receiving several complaint calls of a “young, soaking wet child walking in the roadway, wearing only a diaper,” according to a police-issued statement.
Several motorists told police the child was about to walk across the street when employees from a nearby hair salon ran out and removed the child from the street and the rainy weather conditions.
New Baltimore police said they were able to find the child's parents at their home just two blocks from where the child was found. EMS was called and looked over the child for any immediate medical needs.
A joint investigation between the New Baltimore police and the Macomb County’s Child Protective Services Division has been launched.
