Remember That "Left Behind At The Airport" Kid?

Recall that Jewish kid left behind at Ben-Gurion airport when his parents flew off to Europe? I mention it here.

Well, meet the "left behind after Santa kid":

A Melbourne couple have told police they had so many children with them, it took them 14 hours to realise their five-year-old son had been left at a Christmas lights display late at night.

The boy, Alexander, was discovered wandering alone at 11.30pm (AEDT) on Sunday night in a street in Vermont South after his family had gone to look at the lights.

However, it took his parents until lunchtime on Monday to realise he was missing and contact police.

Alexander spent the night in the watch house at Nunawading police station and was then taken into the care of the Department of Human Services (DHS) on Monday morning.
