I saw a scary sight this afternoon as an adult, who I presumed to be the nanny was leaving a park with two children. The children were white, one was in a brown and steel stroller with a brown and tan plaid design and was a boy under 2. The other child was also a boy under 3. The nanny was very large and walked very stiffly. The little boy exited the park at Carroll St. and leered towards Smith Street. The caretaker yelled after him but could not move quick enough to grab the kid. She did try. She left the stroller and tried to run for the child but she couldn't run. I think this is a hazard. My nanny is a large woman herself, but she could run after any of our children if she had to, even our 13 year old! The boy wearing the camouflage jacket and brown pants was saved by a a man who looked to be wearing a fire fighter's coat. The child was brought back from being in the street. Another woman ran and stood by the baby carriage as this unfolded. The nanny was appreciative but is not fit enough to be caring for two young children. Sorry. The nanny was an older black woman of about 45 yrs old, sweet face, reddish curled hair, pink and white jacket and on the short side with a very heavy build.
