An Ohio toddler is dead after being left outside during freezing weather on Fri., police confirmed.
WKYC reports that the little girl’s mother found her at around 3:30 p.m., off of Doty Drive near Faye Road, in Akron. The mother, who frantically dialed 911, said she found the girl “frozen” on the front porch of their home.
The toddler was taken to the Akron Children’s Hospital, but passed away shortly after. Neighbor Christian Lucas told the station that he had to take the mother’s children home to her a few times in the past.
“It was a few times where I had to take both of her kids home,” Christal Lucas said. “It’s just a very sad situation. It literally broke my heart.”
“I cried because I just don’t understand how a 2-year-old could be outside and you not know,” the neighbor told ABC. “It was freezing and that was my biggest worry when the cops came
WKYC released the 911 audio, in which the operator instructed the mother on what to do until medical help arrived.
“You’re gonna carefully tilt the head back, you’re gonna pinch her nose closed and completely cover her mouth with your mouth and then blow two regular breaths into the lungs,” the 911 dispatcher said.
The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office is expected to perform an autopsy to determine the little girl’s official cause of death.
