Surveillance footage was shared on social media, which showed a woman abandoning a child at a stranger's front door.
On Wednesday, a woman was woken up by a doorbell and knocking on her front door. However, when she opened the door she found a two-year-old boy alone with his stuff.
The lady phoned the Montgomery Sheriff’s Office, who came out to investigate the child's presence.
The cops viewed CCTV footage of the night, and what they saw was disturbing. The video showed a woman dragging the child to the front door before ringing the bell.
Without waiting for someone to open the door, she turns around and ran away. The video was shared on the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page.
According to the post, the child's father was found and he confirmed the boy in the video was his son.
He said the child's mother informed him she was going to have a friend drop off their child at his house. He said when the friend never showed he assumed the child's mother changed her plans.
However, Briefly.co.za learned the friend did drop off the child, but at the wrong house. She left the toddler at his neighbour's home.
Social media users were left shook over the story and they used the platform to give their opinions.
Caitlyn Terrell wrote: "I pray none of them get that poor baby baby back."
Cheryl Barger Burks added, "None of them realize a precious child was left with no defense. Wake up parents."
