Mother Helpless When She Finds Daughter Outside Door

Last week, 5-year-old Melody Mazur took her younger sister, Raelyn, 2, outside to play in the snow sometime between the hours of 10:30 PM and 4:45 AM. Melody eventually wanted to go back inside, but Raelyn wanted to keep playing. So, Melody left the door unlocked, but not the screen door.

Their mother, Courtney Mazur, woke up at 4:45 a.m. to help her fiance get ready for work. She went to warm up his truck, and her heart broke at what she saw.

She found Raelyn "lying face down on my patio with her eyes open like a porcelain doll." Courtney told local channel FOX 9, "We have motion sensor lights outside, and when I opened the door ever so slightly, the light turned on and I found my daughter."

Raelyn was found frostbitten and unconscious. She was rushed to a hospital in Tomah, and then to Mayo Clinic Hospital in Rochester to no avail. Doctors had pronounced her brain dead.

At the time of her death, Raelyn's organs were donated, with her kidneys going to a 47-year-old woman and her liver to a 66-year-old woman. Courtney is sending a message to parents to put alarms on their doors.

She added, "It's just heartbreaking to think if I had done this sooner, my baby would still be here."
