http://fox8.com/2018/02/03/akron-toddler-dies-outside-in-the-cold/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.
Akron police say around 3:30 p.m. Friday, they were called to the apartment on Doty Drive. According to the 911 call, the mother told the dispatcher she found her daughter 'frozen' outside.
Neighbors say they would occasionally hear people arguing outside of the apartment. Lucas says she has seen both children outside alone before.
"I've had to take the baby home because she'll be outside playing…it was a few times that I had to take both of her kids home," she said.
"It's just a very sad situation, it literally broke my heart," said Lucas.
The temperature for much of Friday remained in the teens.
The girl was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital where she died.
There is no information on the whereabouts of the mother. Police are not releasing the toddler’s name, but say they are still investigating.
The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office will be conducting an autopsy.
