Wearing nothing but a diaper, a 2-year-old was discovered at 2 a.m. barefoot in front of a Brooklyn bodega! Now her mom and babysitting are facing child endangerment charges!
Way before dawn on March 12, a taxi driver spotted the young girl standing alone in front of a Brooklyn store. “We were coming through here, then we saw the baby on the corner by itself,” taxi driver Emilio Casso says.
Officers took the 2-year-old door-to-door until they found her home, a half block from where she was found.
“When they showed me the baby, I told them that the baby lives upstairs,” her neighbor Baby Jagmohan says.
The girl’s mother, Lady Rosales, 30, had left her with neighbor Hugo Luna, 27, while she went out, and the adventurous child managed to walk down the stairs and outside.
Lady and Hugo now face charges of endangering the welfare of a child, and the little girl is in custody of Child Protective Services.
