(Newser) – The nap Stephanie Pool, 33, took on Aug. 20 got her into serious trouble—because during it, her 2-year-old daughter left the family's Canandaigua, NY, home through a back door and ended up on a neighbor's porch, WHAM reports. Police say the child was found around 11:45am, unhurt, adds WHEC. The neighbor tried to find the child's parents but had no luck, eventually calling the police. They found Pool—still asleep—30 minutes later. She has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. WHAM says the toddler unlocked the back door, while WHEC says it was already unlocked.
