New York babysitter abandons child near Interstate; calls 911 to report wandering boy

Rhode Island authorities have arrested a woman who called 911 to report spotting a wandering child after she abandoned him.

The bizarre incident took place last Sunday when Daniella Praca called police at around 6:30 a.m. to tell the dispatcher that she spotted a boy roaming near Pawtucket Interstate while riding an Uber.

  • Police responded to the scene where they located the boy and took him to Hasbro Children’s Hospital for medical evaluation. He was later transferred to the Department of Children, Youth, and Families.

    Detectives spent the following hours trying to identify the “initial reporting party” before learning she was the child’s babysitter.

    Praca was charged with filing a false police report pending an arraignment Monday.
