A rental company employee is credited for saving a 4-year-old boy who was found alone in the family’s Buffalo apartment after his mom passed away suddenly.
Rent-A-Center worker Taijuan Littleton told the police he had an appointment with customer Shaleena Hamilton. When he arrived there was no answer at the door. Her son Bryan Allen eventually opened the door and told Taijuan he couldn’t wake up his mother.
The quick thinking worker wrapped Bryan in blanket and took him to his work truck while they waited for paramedics to arrive.
Police say the boy survived on milk and maple syrup for two days. An autopsy determined his mother died of natural causes.
While the little boy is in the care of relatives, the Police Department collection gifts to present to him for Christmas
Police will present him with a new bicycle and other gifts on Monday.
