A toddler infiltrated the White House grounds on Tuesday, leading to a swift response from the US secret service.
Chief of communications of the Secret Service, Anthony Guglielmi, said the toddle crawled through the fence on the North side of the white house, setting off the security alerts.
“The Secret Service Uniformed Division today encountered a curious young visitor along the White House north fence line, who briefly entered White House ground,” Gugliemli said.”The White House security systems instantly triggered Secret Service officers and the toddler and parents were quickly reunited.”
This is not the the first time a toddler has crawled through the White House Fence. A similar incident occurred in 2014 when a toddler squeezed through the White House fence before then President Barack Obama was about to address the nation of Iraq. The breach led to a temporary lockdown, delaying the briefing.
“We were going to wait until he learned to tall to question him, but in lieu of that, he got a timeout and was sent on way with the parents,” Edwin Donovan, spokesman for the United States Secret Service said.
