The father of one of the kids, Clint, told Neil Mitchell is son is a little “escape artist”.

“Most definitely, from his bedroom, out of the bunks at night, climbs over the kids barrier to come downstairs to watch television with us,” he said.

“We were told there were some workers there over the weekend who did not close a gate correctly.

“I really sincerely want to thank him.
