A newborn is crying in her mom’s arms after her stepdad left her alone in a shower with the door shut.
The mother said the stepdad came in and went back out without telling her anything, but she said he still has a warrant out on his person for his arrest.
The incident happened Saturday morning at the home of John and Melissa Wills in Lakeville, Iowa.
They live in the village of Westfield.
They got into the shower after getting into the car with the toddler.
Melissa said she was worried about what might happen when she got in.
She said she asked the mom to let her in, and when she didn’t respond, she went back in the shower.
She said the stepsister came in with the bath towel and the towel went to the sink.
When she opened the door and turned on the shower, the stepmom said the baby started crying.
The mom said she grabbed the bath water and ran to the kitchen to get some shampoo.
She grabbed the towel and threw it to the floor.
She called 911 and the child was taken to the hospital.
The Wills said they’re glad they were able to get the call out to the community.
