Man Horrified After Discovering Why Toddler Was Screaming Out In Pain

A toddler was found chained to a wire fence in her yard with a bungee cord. A neighbor heard the little girl screaming and raced to her rescue. The child's mother says the girl must have gotten tangled up in the cords.

Matt Knight of Nevada was outside when he heard a young child screaming. He rushed to see if there were any serious problems, and found a little girl tied to the fence. The cord was around her neck and Knight says she was struggling.

Knight snapped a photo of the little girl. "I walked over there and the kid, like the photo you saw, was strapped or caught up in some of the bungee strap to the fence," he said. "Because of the previous things that had happened there [at the house] I wanted some photo evidence versus a bunch of hearsay."

Police have repeatedly been called to the household when the child was found outside alone crawling along the streets. The mother this time could not explain why the child was left unattended, but did claim she merely got tangled in the cords accidentally.

Knight shudders at the close call. "That strap or bungee cord was pretty much at neck level. She was up on her feet, but she was kind of struggling around her neck," he said. He's urging Child Protective Services to investigate.
