Yulee, Fl. - The Nassau County mother accused of leaving her young son in a hot car for hours painted a different picture than how deputies originally described the situation.
Nassau County Deputies said Michelle King left her 18-month-old twin son in the car outside her house for about four hours Tuesday.
The boy was rescued by his 6-year-old brother hours later, according to officials.
King, 25, described the situation differently while talking to 911 dispatchers after the boy was found.
According to 911 transcripts, King said the toddler got out of the house while she was sleeping.
Deputies later arrested King on a child neglect without bodily harm charge. She is now out of jail after posting a $10,002 bond.
The boy’s condition was upgraded to fair at UF Health.
Here are is the transcript of the 911 call obtained by WOKV’s partner Action News:
Dispatch: 911. What is your emergency?
King: Um, yes. Um, I have twins and one of my twins was outside here outside and he's all sorts of hot and he's just really tired looking.
Dispatch: Has he lost consciousness or anything?
King: No. He's still awake. Um. I think he has heat stroke.
Dispatch: Is anyone there with you?
King: No. It's just me and my three children.
King: Wake up, Jackson. He [inaudible] somewhere. I don't know how he got out of the house.
Dispatch: Was he outside by himself?
King: Yes ma'am. I don't know how he got out of the house.
Dispatch: And do you know how long he was out there?
King: Ah. Probably two hours.
King: I'm from Las Vegas and I should know better than to keep any door unlocked when we are sleeping.
Dispatch: Is he breathing OK?
King: Yes, he's breathing fine. But when his eyes were open he was real lethargic.
