Florida toddler on roof -- mom busted


Published in Weird News

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (UPI) -- A Tampa, Fla.-area woman was being investigated for child neglect after her 2-year-old daughter was seen crawling on the roof of her house, authorities said.

Erica Hess of New Smyrna Beach was freed on bail this week while the Department of Children and Families looked into the incident, which was first reported by a neighbor who saw the youngster in the precarious position.


Investigators said it appeared the little girl climbed from a deck on to the roof while Hess was supposed to be watching her, the Tampa Times reported.
