“It just could have (gone) so wrong.”
Palms talked to the child and returned to the school to find out what happened. After watching a surveillance tape, she figured out what went wrong, she told the news station.
“(The kids in the class) went to the bathroom, and when they came out of the bathroom, everybody was gone out of the hallway,” Palms said.
“And (the girl) didn’t know where to go, didn’t know how to get back to the classroom, didn’t see anybody,” she said.
So, the little girl started pushing on doors and was able to walk right out of the school.
She normally walks home from school with her older brother and apparently remembered the way there.
The Houston Independent School District is investigating the incident.
