article imageGrandfather mistakenly takes wrong girl from school to doctor

By Kevin Fitzgerald     Oct 7, 2013 in Odd News
Kent - A British grandfather showed up at a school to pick up his granddaughter to take her to a doctor's appointment. The school mistakenly released another girl with the same last name as his granddaughter who was then erroneously taken to the doctor.
According to the Daily Mail, the grandfather, 74, never realized the mix-up while he took the other girl to see the doctor. The six-year-old girl was apparently the same age and had the same hair color as his granddaughter.
The pair traveled on a one-mile bus route to the medical facility where the doctor also failed to realize that he was seeing the wrong patient. The names of the parties involved have yet to be released.
The Huffington Post reports that the mix-up was only realized when the girl later showed her prescribed medication to her parents.
According to UPI, police are still investigating the incident, but have so far determined that no criminal offense occurred.
