RACINE, Wis. (AP) -

Sheriff's deputies say a toddler who was found wandering alone outside in Racine has been taken to a hospital as a precaution.

A WISN-TV report says deputies received a call early Monday from someone who found the boy about 4 a.m. They say the boy was wearing long-sleeved clothes and pants but there was no adult around.

The boy is believed to be 2 to 3 years old. Medics took him to a hospital to make sure he was OK.

Deputies found the boy's mother about 4:45 a.m. and brought her to the hospital. Investigators say the incident appears to be an accident. There was no immediate indication that they would seek criminal charges.
