Authorities discovered the young girl Thursday around 1 p.m. at an apartment complex the 9700 block of Court Glen Drive. They were there to serve an eviction notice and discovered the girl.

The mother who is being held the Harris County Jail on a child endangerment charge, told authorities she left her young disabled daughter alone to go shopping.

The Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office stated that one of its deputies came to the apartment of the woman to serve an eviction notice. It was then that he discovered a young girl alone in her crib attached to both breathing and feeding machines.

When officials were able to make their way to the young girl, they found her unresponsive.
