Children found wandering alone, babysitter arrested
News

Bradenton, Florida -- Deputies say a woman who was supposed to be watching two young children instead went to visit a friend.

Investigators say on Wednesday, Silvia Adriana Lopez left the 2 and 3-year-old children in the care of a mentally handicapped relative so she could visit her friend. Lopez herself was supposed to be babysitting the children at the time.

The relative fell asleep, and the children somehow got out of the home and were found wandering alone near a parking lot.

Lopez, 18, was arrested on two counts of child neglect without great harm.
