UWS Elephant Park - NY
Horrible incident on the UWS Elephant Park Thursday, 11.10.11 - I saw something very disturbing at Elephant Park on the UWS in NY. I'm still shaking. If anyone recognizes these little boys, PLEASE tell the parents! The boys are approx. 1.5 (wearing a grey shirt with a big smiley face) and 2.5 years old (wearing a blue hooded puffy jacket). Both with brown curly hair. The nanny is a tall Russian-speaking woman. She had on a blue hoodie, black jacket, brown Coach shoes, black sunglasses.
She left one of the little boys to play near us for over 30 mins. We never saw her. I kept asking around who was watching him. Then a woman came over carrying the youngest little boy. She found him alone, crying in the MEN'S bathroom! Anyone could have taken/hurt him. The nanny never looked for either of them. When we approached her, she didn't seem upset. I know she understood because her friend translated what had happened. When we left, both boys were left unattended again. The youngest boy was pushing a large, yellow Tonka truck and was close to the exit. My heart breaks that something bad is going to happen to one of them. She definitely should not be taking care of them. Please, if this sounds like anyone you know, please contact the parents.
