The doors of the Ronald McDonald House in Chicago were destroyed during riots and looting that took place Monday night while children were in the house.

The facility provides shelter and resources to families while a child is treated in local hospitals.

The Chicago location is close to Lurie Children’s Hospital.

“ We were very concerned that there was a lot of activity right in front of the house, people making choices that could put them at risk and put our families at risk, so the staff were scared, ” Lisa Mitchell of Ronald McDonald House Charities told ABC11.

More than 30 families with their sick children were inside, along with the staff, watching utterly helplessly as everything unfolded outside.

“ They are already in a very, very difficult place, and having this kind of added stress and worry about getting to and from the hospital even though we are 5 blocks away due to safety concerns just doubles the load, Mitchell said.

Other than the front doors, which had to be boarded up, no damage was done to the inside of the house and no one was injured as residents were locked inside the facility.

Chicago police are now trying to track down those responsible as cleanup began Tuesday.

Monday night looters were caught on camera pushing shopping bags full of stolen goods and equipment into their car.

Some ATMs have also been damaged and broken into as well as cash registers that have been stolen. At least one bank had also been broken into.

Videos of the vandalism showed huge crowds of people making their way to businesses and pouring out of broken windows and doors with clothes and other merchandise. They loaded vehicles, some of which moved slowly and deliberately, apparently unafraid of being caught by the police or answered by dozens of cell phones.

Vehicles moved away slowly, some leaving boxes of stones that they apparently brought to smash the windows.

Bridges and highways in downtown Chicago reopened Tuesday after business owners and emergency workers returned to the area after a night of violence and looting.

More than 100 people were arrested after vandals damaged businesses in the area, shutting down the entire neighborhood, even for those living in the area.

Most of the troubles took place along the upscale Magnificent Mile area of ​​the city, one of the most popular areas that tourists enjoy visiting.

Shops miles from downtown were also looted, their parking lots littered with glass and boxes that once contained television sets and other electronics.

The civil unrest comes at the worst possible time as companies struggle to get back on their feet after months of lockdown in the coronavirus pandemic, followed by more looting earlier this summer during protests against racism and police brutality.
