A young boy's mother is demanding answers after a frightening ordeal in Brooklyn.

She claims her son was left on a van that was supposed to take him to daycare for eight hours yesterday by himself.

That 5-year-old, Enzo Rivera, was lost from just after 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.

He was found wandering the streets of Borough Park instead of at the daycare where his mother believed he was.

The little boy fell asleep on his daycare van and was left behind.

A laid-off teacher's assistant found him outside a public school in Borough Park. He was supposed to be at the Happy Island Daycare in East Flatbush.

The assistant walked him into the school where the principal called police and helped reunite him with his mother Jesenia Caba.

"I was sleeping and then the driver, he left me on the bus," Enzo said.

The daycare director tells Eyewitness News that the bus driver is still on the job.
