Florida Mom Leaves Child in Burning Building

A mother in Miami, Florida was recently charged after leaving her daughter behind in a house fire. Erica Rosello was charged with child neglect in court after telling the judge that she tried putting an oil fire out with water and fled the building. Rosello told witnesses there was no fire, but the firefighters who arrived at the scene discovered her daughter still inside. Rosello had been battling postpartum depression, but was no longer taking medication. According to acquaintances, she stopped taking them in order to try a more natural approach. The girl was taken to a hospital and treated for smoke inhalation, but she is expected to make a full recovery. Rosello is under house arrest after posting $7,500 bond. - See more at:
