A child welfare worker in Florida has been fired after he accidentally dropped a foster child off at the wrong house.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the 4-year-old girl was dropped off at a home with complete strangers, a 14-year-old girl and her mom.
RaSheeda Yates said she emerged from the shower just before 8 p.m. on Monday to find the little girl sitting on the couch eating a snack.
While the little girl explained that she had just been dropped off by a man, she did not know his name, nor did she know her mother’s name.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the girl also did not mention that she was in foster care.
It wasn’t until hours later—when the child’s biological mother saw a post about the girl on Facebook—that the pieces finally fell into place.
Authorities say the little girl was supposed to be dropped off with her foster parents, who lived at a similar address as Yates and her daughter.
According to authorities, the driver dropped the girl off at Yates’ house at 7:45 p.m., but he did not go inside to make sure she was OK.
Officials from the Florida Department of Children and Families say that driver has just been fired.
"We were absolutely outraged when we learned of this incident and so thankful that this young girl safely reached her intended destination," said DCF spokeswoman Jessica Sims.
Camelot president and CEO Michael DiBrizzi added that the driver incorrectly programmed his GPS.
"Camelot Community Care places the safety of children first and foremost, and the events that occurred were inexcusable and not reflective of our policies for the safety of children," DiBrizzi said in an email.
