A
5-year-old child in a remote Alaskan village carried a toddler a
half-mile to a neighbor’s house in bitter sub-zero temperatures
after they were left home alone, police said Friday. The older child
was frightened after the power went out at the home, so wearing only
socks and light clothing, he picked up the younger child and started
walking through temperatures that dipped 31 degrees below zero in the
village of Venetie, Alaska, according to state troopers. Both
children suffered cold-weather injuries, according to an Alaska
Department of Safety news release. Julie Peter, 37, left the
5-year-old and 18-month-old home alone and has been arrested on
suspicion of endangering a minor, authorities said. Her relationship
to the children was not immediately known.
