My first grade son...... he did

I don't know what to think about this since this is very first time it has even happened to him.
So his school is quiet large and the bathroom is far from the playground.
We were told that he went in the woods and went to bathroom!!!! He told us that he had to go so bad to a point where he could not run to bathroom. And I think he did not want to wet his pants due to embarrassment.
This type of incident never happened before so I am devastated.
He is known as an very good well behaved child at school and doing well academically as well.
We advised him next time before he goes to playground, use bathroom.
We did not want to make too big of a deal since we did not want to destroy his self-esteem.

Hopefully it will never happen again!!!

I am crying, so embarrassed and feeling sorry for him as well.
Any suggestions? Or thoughts?

Thank you!

I don't think it's that bad. He didn't want to mess himself, and realized he couldn't make it back to the building in time. He made a logical decision. Yes, he should try to go to the bathroom before going out to play, and he should recognize the signs his body gives him in time to get back to the building. But who hasn't had sudden urges that give little warning? Keep teaching him the "right" thing to do, but I wouldn't get all bent out of shape for something like this.
