<P><STRONG>By ELLEN BARRY<BR>Los Angeles Times</STRONG></P>
<P>BATON ROUGE, LA. - In the chaos that was Causeway Boulevard, this group of evacuees stood out: a 6-year-old boy walking down the road, holding a 5-month-old,surrounded by five toddlers who followed him around as if he were their leader. </P>
<P></P>
<P>They were holding hands. Three of the children were about 2 years old, and one was wearing only diapers. A 3-year-old girl had her 14-month-old brother in tow. The 6-year-old spoke for all of them, and he said his name was Deamonte Love.</P>
<P>After their rescue Thursday, paramedics in the Baton Rouge rescue operations headquarters tried to coax their names out of them.</P>
<P>Transporting the children alone was "the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, knowing that their parents are either dead" or that they had been abandoned, said Pat Coveney, a Houston emergency medical technician who put them into the back of his ambulance and drove them out of New Orleans.</P>
<P>"It goes back to the same thing," he said. "How did a 6-year-old end up being in charge of six babies?"</P><img src ="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/ccerino/aggbug/14177.aspx" width = "1" height = "1" /><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/ccerino/archive/2005/09/06/14177.aspx">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
