Cops respond to car crash rush to 2-year-old girl after mom's confession
February 25, 2017
A pregnant Charleston mom is facing charges after cops discovered that she left her 2-year-old daughter home alone. The mom’s secret was discovered when she was injured in a car accident on May 9. When police responded to the incident, she told them about her 2-year-old, WCHSTV reported.
According to a Facebook post on the Charleston Police Department Community Services page, Charleston Police Department officers Peter Kapeluck and Martin McMicken were then dispatched to the pregnant mom’s house. They knocked on the door, but when no one answered they looked for a way in.
The front door was unlocked, so they entered the house that way. The officers found the girl upstairs in the house. They took good care of her, changing her soiled diaper and feeding her when she told an officer that she was hungry. When another Charleston PD officer arrived on the scene, the officer snapped a picture of McMicken feeding the little girl in her high chair.
The photo was later posted to the Charleston Police Department Community Services page, where it was used to show that officers in the Charleston police department go above and beyond the call of duty.
So far, the post has been liked and shared thousands of times. The police department contacted the girl’s father. Commenters on the post said they didn’t understand how a mom could leave her child home alone like that, but they commended the officers for their hard work.
