Ohio parents arrested after 2-year-old is stuck in toilet

CANTON, Ohio (AP) – Authorities say the parents of a 2-year-old northeast Ohio boy have been arrested and jailed after the toddler became stuck in a toilet while left alone in the family’s apartment.

The (Canton) Repository reports that police were called to a Canton apartment Thursday after neighbors reported hearing a child crying for 30 minutes. Officers rescued the boy after a maintenance worker let them inside.

A Canton police lieutenant told the newspaper the boy’s mother arrived two hours later carrying Wal-Mart bags and said a sister was supposed to be babysitting. The lieutenant says the woman couldn’t remember her sister’s last name. Police found three marijuana plants in a cupboard.

The father was eventually found and arrested. Both parents are 20. The boy was turned over to child protective services.
