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.
