A crying infant desperately try to wake up his “drunk” and comatose parents was rescued by police. The toddler was seen wailing as his parents sat slumped with their heads on their chests outside a block of flats in the south-eastern Ukrainian city of Zaporozhye.
Shockingly the incident was the second time officers had been called out to the parents that day. Earlier, the police had found the pair passed out and surrounded by drinks in what appears to be a park as their son sat in his pram nearby. His bottle lay among his parents’ discarded glasses. After this incident they were cautioned and sent on their way, reports Faktiy.
But just hours later officers were called again to discover the tot grasping his father’s leg as he sat dead to the world on a step. Officers picked up the dismayed toddler, put him back in his buggy and hauled the 28-year-old couple back to the police station. The parents – who have not been named by police – are being investigated on child neglect and cruelty charges.
