    Angry Mom arrested after toddler abandoned in woods

    A 3-year-old girl survived frigid temperatures after being abandoned in the woods when her mother's car ran out of gas in south Orange County, authorities said.

    The child, whose body temperature had dropped to 84 degrees, and her 5-month-old sister were treated early Thursday at St. Cloud Hospital and turned over to the state Department of Children & Families, said Cpl. Carlos Torres of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    The child's mother, Krissy Deshay Glover, 21, of Apopka, was arrested on a charge of child neglect and was being held without bond in the Orange County Jail, Torres said Friday.
    Glover told police she was headed to Tampa about 3 a.m. Tuesday with her two daughters when she ran out of gas in some woods near Orlando International Airport.

    At the time, it was raining, temperatures had dropped into the 40s and the wind was blowing about 20 mph, according to weather reports.

    Glover left the car with her two children, leaving their jackets in the car, and forced the 3-year-old to walk barefoot beside her as she carried the infant, Torres said. She left the 3-year-old behind when she became too weak to walk farther.

    Once again, isn't there anything more hefty than child neglect to charge her with?

    Was she high? Why would she pass other houses and trailer parks before she knocked on the Carters door?
    I have the most beautiful 3 year old at home, and I would die before I left her out in the cold like that.
    This makes me so mad!

    What do you have to do to be charged with endangering the life of a child? Isn't that what this woman did? She should be required to be sterilized. She doesn't deserve to bear children.

    I cannot imagine leaving my three year old behind. Something's hinky here with the story--she didn't even get the children's jackets from the car before passing several houses along the way before stopping for help. I think she was hoping her daughter would die.

    You and me both! Child neglect? I think it should at least be attempted murder in this case.
