Akron toddler dies outside in the cold
AKRON Akron police are investigating the death of a 2 year old girl. The toddler was found out in the cold on her front porch.
The frantic mother called 911 after discovering her 2 year old unresponsive on their front porch.
“You’re gonna carefully tilt the head back, you’re gonna pinch her nose closed and completely cover her mouth with your mouth and blow two regular breaths into the lungs,” says an Akron dispatcher on the 911 call.
“I cried because I just don’t understand how a two year old could be outside and you not know,” said neighbor Crystal Lucas.
Lucas says the woman who lives in the apartment kept to herself and had two children, the 2 year old girl and a boy. She was surprised when police officers knocked on her door.
“It was freezing and that was my biggest worry when the cops came, when they started asking about the kids, they didn’t divulge what was really going on, but when he asked about the kids, obviously something was going on and I was worried,” Lucas said.
