Girl, 3, calls emergency line after being left home alone all day
A 3-year-old girl in Winterswijk called emergency line 112 on Monday afternoon to report that she's been home alone all day. Police officers responded and found the child at home by herself. "She had no idea where her mother was and when asked whether she had something to eat, she said she only ate a bread stick", police officer Willem Saris said to newspaper Gelderlander. The mother was tracked down. She said she was buying groceries. Exactly how long she was away from home is unclear.
