A two year-old Hurricane Rita evacuee is safe after being rescued near a busy interstate. It happened in Longview Tuesday afternoon, near the eastbound entrance ramp of I- 20 at Estes Parkway.
The child's grandmother was watching the boy, while his mom was sleeping. The grandmother says the boy was playing at the Hampton Inn where they were staying. She says she turned her back for a second, and the child was gone. A motorist, FEMA employee Michael Sweet was the one who found him.
