The 2-year-old has been identifed as Zaydek Carpenter and his mother as Morgan Tucker, from Ohio. According to Tucker, she had turned her head for a fraction of a second, and her toddler son slid under a fence and ran into the field during the second half of FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City SC match. She is seen jumping over the fence and running behind him at full speed.
“I literally looked away for one second and saw he was under the fence and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. I had to jump over the gate and then sprinted after him,” she told Good Morning America.
Later, Sam Greene shared the photograph on Twitter, shared a picture of the mother-son-duo as she carried him off the field. He wrote: “A young pitch invader was quickly scooped up by their own personal security detail without incident”.
