SHAWNEE, KS (KCTV) -
A Johnson County mother is being investigated after her two toddlers were found outside by themselves.
The children were found outside an apartment at 67th Street and Interstate 35. A neighbor found the children, then heard their 5-month-old brother crying inside.
"It's ridiculous. She don't need to have kids if she can't handle the three kids," said a Shawnee woman who did not want to be identified.
She is speaking out about a situation which happened right outside her backdoor Tuesday night.
"I called her name four times. I was standing over her," the woman said.
She said what happened could have been a nightmare. The woman was on her patio when she said two children who live next door, ages 2 and 3, came outside. The older boy told the woman his mother was asleep. She could hear the 5-month-old baby inside crying.
"We sat out here for another minute to see if she was going to get up and she never got up and the kids were running in and out of the house, slamming the door, and she never moved," the neighbor said.
The woman said she went in and found the baby strapped down in a car seat in the middle of the floor with his mother still asleep on the couch. The woman picked up the baby and changed his diaper, which she said was soaking wet. She said she went back outside to keep an eye on the other two children after trying repeatedly to wake up their mother.
After some time passed and the mother was still asleep, she called the babies' grandmother who came over to the apartment.
"She came over here and they went in there, they were getting the kids' stuff together and mom never moved, she never got up off the couch," the neighbor said. "This has been hours."
The grandmother asked the woman to call police. When officers arrived they too tried to wake the mother up with no luck.
An ambulance was called and, after police gathered statements from all of the neighbors, an officer was finally able to wake up the mom. The neighbor said the mother had no idea people had been in and out of her house for the last couple hours and had no idea why police were standing over her.
"They could have been in the street. They could have got snatched. Anything could have happened to her kids, anything," the neighbor said.
The case is still being investigated and will be forwarded to prosecutors for possible charges.
