    Australian police voiced shock Thursday after discovering an eight-year-old boy locked up in a shed with only a mattress and a bucket at an elaborate underground drug-growing compound. "Police will allege one of the children was locked in a room for long periods of time over the past few weeks," police said.

    The Newcastle Herald said the boy was found in a two square meter (21 square feet) area at the back of a tin work shed, the door locked from the outside and with only a single mattress and a bucket inside to use as a toilet.

    OMG poor child. :(

    I wonder who the parents of these kids are? The article doesn't mention if the parents are actually among the arrested.
