Little Girl Hospitalized After Hide-and-Seek Game Goes Very, Very Wrong

Generally, the game of hide-and-seek has two main components: hiding and seeking, and parents should be aware that a failure to complete both objects of the game can end in danger.

A five-year-old girl is currently recovering at Jackson Memorial Hospital after the game went very, very wrong.

According to WSVN, the girl was playing the game with friends near her home at Northwest 12th Avenue and 65th Street. The girl decided to hide in her mother's car, and apparently no one found her.

After other children noticed she had gone mother he mother found her in the car weak and exhausted.

"With the kids out of school and out here playing around, you need to make sure that you have somebody responsible watching the children at all times," Miami Fire Rescue Lieutenant Ignatius Carroll told the news station.

The girl is expected to recover, but stayed overnight at the hospital.
