On Thursday night a toddler squeezed through the bars of the fence in front of the White House and made his way onto the North Lawn. This triggered security alerts and caused agents to race across the lawn.

The toddler, who no doubt was terrified by the ordeal, has since been 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 way with parents,” Edwin Donovan, spokesman for the US Secret Service, said in what will go down as one of the best press statements of the year. Source ABCNews
