Thanks to a newspaper delivery driver in St. Louis, two children are safe and sound tonight. But this story could have taken a tragic turn.
Police say the two toddlers who are 3 and 1 were wandering alone at around five this morning when the driver saw them. Both were wearing jackets but the youngest was not wearing shoes and it was 13 degrees outside.
Police say the children's parents were not at the house where they were found but there were three men sleeping inside the home along with five other children.
