A DoorDash driver is being credited for rescuing a toddler walking around in nothing but a diaper and socks Sunday morning.
The driver, Robert Jackson III, was traveling along 8 Mile Road in Detroit, Michigan, around 11 a.m. when he spotted the child. He immediately stopped, wrapped him up in his coat and put him in his car to warm up, FOX 2 Detroit reported.

Detroit police identified the child and determined that he had just walked outside his family home. Investigators say a 16-year-old sibling was supposed to be babysitting him at their residence less than a block away.
Jackson is glad he was there to help out the child, who was taken to a children’s hospital to be checked out.
