Boys tunnel out of kindergarten, head to buy Jaguar


Get busy playing, or get busy driving.

That's the realization two 5-year-old boys in the city of Magnitogorsk, Russia, came to two weeks ago, hatching a plan to tunnel out of a kindergarten yard and head to a car dealership with the intention of buying a Jaguar, the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily reports.

The two youths used spades to dig a small tunnel under the playground fence over the course of several days and on Aug. 28th were able to escape the yard and start walking toward the luxury dealership in one of the larger cities in Chelyabinsk region.

A passing motorist spotted the pair just as they were approaching APEX Jaguar of Magnitogorsk, having walked some 2 kilometers from the kindergarten. The driver became suspicious when she saw two 5-year-olds walking by themselves and inquired where they were going. The pair replied that they were headed to the dealership to buy a "grown-up car" -- specifically a Jaguar -- but that they didn't have any money. The female driver took the two to a public safety office nearby.

The Komsomolskaya Pravda daily learned that the two boys had been preparing for their escape for several days, and that it took kindergarten staff nearly half an hour to notice they were gone. The police had been informed of their absence and already begun searching for them, circulating a report regarding missing children to all on-duty officers.

The kindergarten district has taken the matter seriously; their teacher has been fired and the director of the kindergarten was issued a formal warning by district officials.

"This is considered a very serious violation," the head of the kindergarten district, Olga Denisenko, told Komsomolskaya Pravda.

Nevertheless, the parents of the two boys did not file a complaint against the kindergarten. The daily newspaper was not able to learn just which model of Jag the two had their sights on.
