Ohio Child Left at Home with Her Father
According to the authorities, a two-year-old was found unresponsive by her mother on Friday. The woman allegedly left the house that afternoon in order to run some errands, leaving the child in the care of her husband.
As the police records state, the individual, who usually works late night shifts, dozed off, leaving the child unsupervised. There was another child inside the house that evening who told the authorities that she did not see her younger sibling wonder off outside.
Several hours later, the woman returned home after running her errands, only to find her 2-year-old daughter outside, lying unconscious on the front porch. The woman told the authorities that she tried to bring the child around, but she showed no signs of life.
She called 911 and told the emergency dispatcher about the baby. The two-year-old was later rushed to the hospital, where she was declared dead. Following the incident, the authorities have decided to file no charges against the couple until the coroner completes the autopsy. Results should be posted on Monday.
Meanwhile, after hearing about the incident, several neighbors have set up a stuffed animal memorial in front of the apartment complex. Commenting on the incident involving the Ohio child, one the neighbors who wished to remain anonymous declared that the child shouldn’t have been left unattended.
Also, the man told the reporters that the authorities would do their best to find out if there was any foul play or not.
