The above photo shows two secret service agents seizing a toddler who broke through the elaborate and high-tech security of the White House. He did so by squeezing through the bars of the steel fence, which are 5.5 inches across.
The Associated Press reports that the breach triggered security procedures that temporarily restricted access to one of the most secure buildings on Earth. The uniformed Secret Service agents pictured above brought the child back to his parents.

This is the first successful breach of the White House fence since it was recently doubled in height. It appears that the designers did not consider the possibility of simply going through the fence.
