Two young children were found walking along the side of the Tohoku Expressway near the town of Nishigo in central Fukushima at around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Police said the two children, a 5-year-old boy and his 3-year-old sister, were discovered walking down the road by a truck driver, 34.
The man picked the children up and took them to the prefectural highway patrol office. The pair were uninjured. According to police, the children were found about 2 kilometers from a bus station along the expressway.
Police believe the children had walked from their home, three kilometers from the bus station, then entered the expressway from there and got disoriented.© News reports
