Lyft Driver Rescues Worcester Toddler In Subfreezing Temperatures

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Lyft driver helped rescue a 2-year-old girl who was found wandering outside in below freezing temperatures in Massachusetts.

Authorities say the driver spotted the girl around 3 a.m. in Worcester Wednesday after delivering a fare.

The Telegram & Gazette reports the driver brought the girl to his apartment and called police, who then had the child taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Police say the child's grandmother was watching her at the time, and they believe the girl somehow got the door open while the grandmother was sleeping.

The child has since been released to her mother and is in good health.
