The first day of school turned into a nightmare for one Oregon mother after her five-year-old son was sent home with a stranger. After school ended, the boy was forced to get in a car with a woman from a local daycare, instead of taking the bus home like he was supposed to do.

The boy said he didn’t know who the woman was and he was crying for his mom. Meanwhile, the mother panicked

and called the school which tracked him down. Morningside Elementary School has since apologized.
