Naked Child Found Wandering On Highway

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a three- or four-year-old boy was found wandering naked on busy Dixie Highway this morning in Metro Louisville near the Jefferson-Hardin County line.

A Metro Safe supervisor told The Courier-Journal that the boy was believed to be autistic. He was discovered by members of a Fort Knox ambulance crew.

The crew turned the boy over to a Louisville EMS unit and he was taken to Kosair-Children's Hospital. Information was not immediately available concerning a search for the child's parents.

    Right on, Kelly. I bet child services gives the kid right back to the "parents", once they find out who they are, so they can have another chance to neglect/abuse him... lucky he's still alive this long,being with the kind of people supposed to be caring for him!

    I lived in Louisville for a very short time about 5 mins from Dixie... this kind of thing is common out on Dixie Hwy, you never know what might come about there, it's a good thing this child is okay and nothing happened to him!
