ATLANTA - A mother is outraged after she says a summer day camp left her 5-year-old son behind at a park.
“They were calling his name like they would usually do, but after the third time, Samuel didn’t pop up,” Gladden said. “It broke my heart. I felt like I failed him as a parent.”
Camp officials called authorities at Centennial Olympic Park and Gladden learned her son had been left there unsupervised for more than an hour.
The 5-year-old started crying after he looked around and realized he didn’t recognize anyone. The park cameras showed Samuel wandering the park by himself.
“I was crying for my mommy and I was crying for my daddy,” Samuel said.
Channel 2’s Eric Philips tracked down a camp official, but they declined to comment.
