FRANKLIN – A Franklin man will answer to child endangerment charges after police found his two-year-old son alone in a city park.  It happened on Friday at around 12:40 in the afternoon. 

The child was spotted in the 11th street playground by Community Ambulance workers, who cared for him until police arrived. 

Officers say his father, 25-year-old Shawn McDonald, fell asleep and the child walked out of the home.  What’s more, police say this at least the third time this type of thing has happened.
