California school district under scrutiny after 3-year-old mistakenly released to stranger

CORCORAN, Calif. (KMPH) — During the first week of school, most people would expect teachers to be extra vigilant, but some parents in California say they experienced the opposite.

Bret Harte Elementary School allowed a 3-year-old child to be picked up by a stranger on Friday.

"The school district is totally at fault, totally at fault for this," said 3-year-old Natalia's Father, Juan Alcantar. "Three days into the school year... something like this shouldn't happen."

Alcantar said their daughter Natalia was missing when his wife arrived for pick up.
