A child called 911 to report an overflowing toilet. As a result, that child's mother was arrested.
Prosecutors say the mother locked two young children inside a home in New Salisbury and was on a job working more than 100 miles away in Indianapolis.
"Harrison County 911, what is your emergency?" a dispatcher asked.
"Um, can you please contact my mom because...um...the toilet is broken and it's flooding—it's leaking out everywhere!" the child said.
"I am 9 years old with my twin brother," the boy explained. "And are you by yourself?" the dispatcher asked. "Where's your parents?" the dispatcher asked. "My dad doesn't live here, and my mom is at work, all the way in Indianapolis," the child told the dispatcher.
Schalk says after breaking into the home through a window, what emergency crews found was pretty disturbing. "Once they were inside, they were able to see numerous hazards including space heaters that were plugged in," he said. If convicted, the mother faces six months to three years in prison.

Клаус Шмидт, - выпалил Беккер имя из старого учебника немецкого. Долгая пауза. - Сэр… я не нахожу Клауса Шмидта в книге заказов, но, быть может, ваш брат хотел сохранить инкогнито, - наверное, дома его ждет жена? - Он непристойно захохотал.
- Да, Клаус женат. Но он очень толстый.
