Little Girl Watches Her Sibling Die Because Their Mother Abandoned Them For 9 Days

An apparently emotionally disturbed young mom in Ukraine left her toddler and a two-year-old alone and without food in her flat for nine days. A 23-month-old boy died from hunger after six days and his two-year-old sister remained by herself in the apartment with the body for three more days.

The mom in question is 20-year-old Vladislava Podchapko, and she left her children only with candles when she abandoned them to be with her lover.

When she was found, the two-year-old was rushed to the hospital near death, but is expected to survive.

“The girl was exhausted, she was very weak,” a doctor treating her noted. “She was immediately taken into hospital where we started intravenous feeding. She is better now and we can say that she will live. We have started her on tiny amounts of solid food.”

Podchapko, who is either pregnant with her third child or now a mother-of-three, allegedly told police: “I didn't know that children could die.”

She has been arrested and faces up to eight years in prison for child neglect.

The scared kids tried to get out of the apartment, crying and tearing at the front door.

It seems neighbors heard the children crying on several occasions and called police who did not respond to the call.

The children received no help at all, and were only found when their mother finally came back and police officers were called to the scene.
