NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The mother of a Brooklyn toddler was arrested Monday after the young girl was found wandering alone on the street.

A sharp-eyed cabbie spotted the 2-year-old wearing nothing more than a diaper around 2 a.m. in Cypress Hills.

It seems the impossible journey from the home on Euclid Avenue — a 3-story house with an 8 foot high stoop — wasn’t that impossible for the tot.

“Elizabeth,” the mother of a 2-year-old herself, wonders how the little girl got down the steep stairs.

“Luckily there was somebody outside that seen her. God forbid the baby would have crossed the street and something. Nobody would have known because everybody’s sleeping at that time,” she told 1010 WINS’ Al Jones.

The child was treated at Brookdale Hospital and released to an uncle. Police have arrested the girl’s 30-year-old mother, Lady Rosales.

Baby Jagmohan, a neighbor, said Rosales is a good mother, but doesn’t know what occurred early Monday morning.

“She take care of her daughter a lot….I don’t know what happened last night,” she said.

The parents of another Brooklyn toddler were also arrested in a separate incident after their son was found wandering around 1 p.m. Saturday about a half block from his house.
