911 call: Malnourished Ohio boy 'stiff as a board'

Published: Mon, November 12, 2012 @ 5:30 p.m.

VERMILION, Ohio (AP) — A mother’s call to 911 about her 18-month-old disabled son sent an ambulance crew to a northern Ohio home where they found the undersized baby dead and six other children, most malnourished.

Authorities released the call today.

No charges were immediately filed in the case. The six children, most physically or mentally disabled, were removed from the home. Four were sent to the hospital and remain hospitalized.

The mother told 911 that the infant was “stiff as a board” when she and her husband woke up last Tuesday in Vermilion.

While on the 911 call, the mother asked family members, “When’s the last time somebody went in there to check?”

An autopsy blamed the boy’s death on malnourishment and dehydration.

Neighbors said they have seen little of the family.

Leave no child behind? Yeah, right; not only did the criminal parents of these seven children abandon the kids to a life of cruelty, malnourishment and starvation, but our hypocritical society neglected these kids (along with millions existing in abject poverty) as well. Where was Childrens Services?
