In Prineville a toddler wearing only a diaper outside in the freezing cold is now okay, but it was a big scare for the toddler's mom. Yesterday the mother returned to her home south of Prineville after dropping a child off at school and encountered a nightmare. Her 2-year-old son, wearing only a diaper, had gotten out of the home and was wandering around their rural neighborhood in the snow and sub-freezing cold. Vanessa Haggstrom, 25, began frantically following the barefoot boy’s footsteps in the snow and called Crook County Sheriff’s Deputies around 10 a.m. Several neighbors who heard the police scanner reports also began looking for the child, but as it turned out, a woman walking her dog found the fallen, crying toddler, more than 20 minutes later, very cold and shaking but otherwise all right. Sgt. James Savage says the boy had actually had fallen into the snow and was close; it could have been a real tragedy.
