Pregnant Woman Saves Boy with Autism Who Wandered from School

May 14, 2014

(May 14, 2014) - An Oklahoma City mom-to-be took a chance when she noticed a 4-year-old boy with autism walking alone near a busy intersection. The woman is 36 weeks pregnant and has yet to be identified. 

According to KFOR-TV, the boy was afraid and tried to kick and run away from the woman but she made sure to hold onto him until police arrived. It turns out the boy wandered away from Monroe Elementary School a short distance away. A similar incident involving a different different student at the school happened a week earlier.

The mystery mom did have this message for the community: "I just did what I would hope anyone would do! I’m not at all looking for any recognition.” Watch the KFOR-TV report above for more.
