A Florida mother was arrested for child neglect after a 3-year-old girl dialed 911, even though the dispatcher couldn’t understand her.

Deputies managed to locate the child and her younger brother who had been left alone at a home with an aggressive dog, a shotgun within their reach, with no adult supervision.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, the children’s 26-year-old mother Yajaira Tirado was taken into custody on Tuesday on two counts of child neglect. She told police that she left the children while she had coffee with a man in another area of their mobile home park.

An incident report indicated that deputies noticed the little girl staring out the window while still on the phone. Cops discovered the boy in a playpen.

Tirado was released from custody after posting bond. The children have been placed in the custody of their father.
