Toddler Causes White House Shutdown

While the Secret Service is used to ambitious people jumping the fence surrounding the White House, the agency was faced with a new challenge on Thursday. A toddler squeezed through the railings, causing agents to sprint across the White House lawn, putting the complex on lockdown. The toddler was eventually reunited with his parents. “We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on his way with his parents,” said Edwin Donovan, spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service.
