Somebody needs to lock this mother up for pure stupidity.
According to Mail Online
A one-year-old girl and her two-year-old brother are dead after drowning in a swimming pool while their mother was asleep indoors.
Harley Bradford and her brother Jason were found unconscious in the pool yesterday morning after their mother woke up and couldn’t find them.
Harley was pronounced dead at the hospital and Jason died last night.
The children’s mother, who has not been identified, is accused of not calling 911 because there was an illegal drug operation taking place at the mobile home in La Mesa, San Diego, where the incident occurred.
Instead she and Larry D’Angelo allegedly brought the children to a nearby fire station before D’Angelo fled the scene on foot.
She told authorities she had been asleep and woke up to find the two children unconscious in the pool.
When the children were rushed to hospital, the one-year-old was pronounced dead on arrival and her brother transferred to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.
He was later pronounced dead.
Initially the mother told investigators that the incident occurred at a community swimming pool in a nearby mobile home park, the LA Times reports.
But she later admitted that she had lied and that the incident occurred at the friend’s home.
A search of the home uncovered a drug operation and the Narcotics Task Force was called in.
Lt Glenn Giannantonio told CBS8: ’She said she initially gave the wrong location because she didn’t want her friend who lives at the residence to get in trouble for not having a fence around the pool.’
The pick-up truck the couple brought the children to the fire station in was registered to D’Angelo who was later arrested on felony charges of growing drugs, possession of drugs for sale, attempted manufacture of a controlled substance, and grand theft.
He is being held on $50,000 bond.
Sheriff deputies say foul play is not suspected in the drowning.
It is not clear if the mother faces any charges.
If your babies are dying why give the wrong location even if you are in a house with drugs. She should have put the needs of her children first.
