It only takes a 4-year-old to breach White House security — again

The security fence surrounding the White House lawn was breached once again Sunday in broad daylight, sending Secret Service officers scrambling in response.

The culprit? An unidentified 4-year-old.

“4 year old child climbed under temporary bike rack along PA Ave. Child was fine and was safely reunited with parents,” Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told the White House pool reporter, according to The Weekly Standard.

The Weekly Standard noted this earlier pool report detailing the incident:

Pool loaded the vans at 12:38 pm and motorcade is rolling at 12:51 pm to an undisclosed location.

As the pool was initially gathering at the north doors of the Palm Room, security agents suddenly rushed to the north lawn with their weapons drawn and pool was told to get back inside. It turned out to be a non-incident, in which an individual jumped over the small bike fence outside the White House gate. After a few moments, pool was able to gather again. Your pooler has reached out to Secret Service for more details.

This was followed in short order with: “Update on brief security scramble at the White House prior to departure: It was just a child.”

The is the second time in less than a year that security has been breached by a pre-kindergartner. In August, Secret Service was alerted when a toddler managed to squeeze between the iron bars of the perimeter fence and make his way onto the White House lawn.

“We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him,” Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said, according to USA Today. “But in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on [his] way with his parents.”

This hasn’t been a successful week for those guarding the president Just two days prior to this latest “fence boy” incident, a Secret Service officer was placed on leave following his felony burglary arrest for breaking into his girlfriend’s house, according to the New York Daily News.

Here’s a video report of last year’s pint-sized fence jumper, as well as a brief recap of other White House security breaches.
