Toddler Found Unresponsive and Alone in Filthy Home

A toddler was found home alone in critical condition after her mother, who reportedly provided a false name, called the authorities to alert them that a youngster needed emergency medical help.

According to reports, early in the afternoon on January 8, 911 received a call from a woman who said a toddler was by herself in a Fairborn, Ohio apartment. She said she wanted to report it because the youngster needed medical attention. Officers from the Fairborn Police Department went to the address.

When the police arrived, they reportedly found the young girl on the floor near a feces and urine-covered mattress. They reported that her body was covered with marks that looked like bug bites, and they were unsure if she was alive. The toddler was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

As they looked around inside the dwelling, the officers reported there was garbage and dead bugs on every surface. They also noted that there was a dead rodent on the floor.

A woman outside the apartment was identified as the person who called in the report, and when the police talked to her, she allegedly told them she was the girl’s mother, but had given the dispatcher a made-up name. She allegedly said she was afraid to give her real name.

The woman was taken into custody and booked into the Greene County Jail. She is facing preliminary charges of second-degree felonious aggravated assault, and third-degree endangering children – simple assault. According to jail records, she remains incarcerated on a $500,000 bond.

The police reported that the child, who weighed only 16 pounds, was in critical condition, and she will likely be in the hospital for a while so she can recover.
