Police and school officials in New Zealand say that a 10-year-old boy had a close call when a teenager lured him to a wooded area near the school when he went to use a school restroom. When they arrived at the wooded area, the older boy pulled out a length of chain and was apparently about to tie the child to a tree when some adults passing by scared him off.
