On June 28, a child’s legal guardian had to take her husband to a medical appointment, and she left the boy’s birth mother in charge of taking care of him while she was gone. The guardian reportedly made it clear that they were not to leave her McDowell County home in her absence.
Between midnight and 1:00 am, members of the Logan County Station volunteer fire department went to help a woman that accidentally locked her keys in the trunk of her car. When they arrived, they reported that they saw a child in a diaper and tee shirt standing outside the car. The youngster was allegedly close enough to the road that he could be hit by a moving vehicle.
