A Franklin man faces a charge of endangering the welfare of a child following the discovery of a two year-old boy who police say was wandering alone through a city playground.

Franklin City Police say Community Ambulance Service employees tended to the child after they spotted him in the 11th Street Playground across the street from their headquarters.

Investigators say the boy had been found wandering alone on at least two other occasions.

Police charged 25 year-old Shawn McDonald in the incident.  They say McDonald fell asleep while watching the youngster, and the boy wandered away.
