A 6-year-old girl was rescued Thursday evening by police from a home in Mt. Morris Township after posting photos online of her father, who was found dead, and stepmother, who was unconscious.
Police were alerted to the situation by the child's grandparent, who lives in Tennessee.
Mt. Morris Township, which has a population of about 21,000, is in Genesee County.
The young child's grandparent reportedly saw the photos of the adults on Facebook, which the child posted to get help, a report from WNEM-TV in Bay City said. The grandparent alerted Mt. Morris Township police.
Officers, the report added, found the child's father dead, and the man's wife unconscious.
The cause of death is being investigated, and the woman was taken to a hospital.
It's unclear what happened or how long the child was in the home.
But, a report from WJRT-TV in Flint, quoted Mt. Morris Township Police Chief Terence Green as saying the child may have been alone with dead and unconscious parents for "at least a day."
