Two Year Old Stranded Outside In Below Freezing Temperatures

Posted: Updated:

 A two year old boy has been placed into the department of children and family services custody after being found outside all alone!

To make matters worse, the toddler was found with no coat, shoes, or hat! He was found around midnight on Friday in Chicago.

The temperature was only three degrees at the time.

Authorities say it is unclear how long the boy was wandering alone.

"I'm just glad that they picked him up because they said he didn't have any shoes or hat.  He was only two years old, with the weather like this he could have caught a cold, ammonia or anything," says neighbor, Thomas Ellis.

The boy's mother was located around 5:30am on Friday. The toddler remains in DCFS custody.
