She won't face charges
As mothers, we all know what it’s like to need a break. From crying babies to whining toddlers to fighting siblings, it can all get to be a bit too much sometimes.
Most mothers will call in a sitter or wait for their husband or partner to arrive home before dashing out of the house faster than Usain Bolt running the 100m, but sadly for one 7 year old in Colorado, her mother didn’t call in anyone to look after her when she needed a break, and left her home alone with tragic consequences.
