5-Year-Old Carries 18-month-old in Extreme Cold 31 degrees below zero in Alaska – WATCH

A 5-year-old child carried a toddler for half a mile in below-zero temperatures after they were allegedly abandoned in a remote Alaska home, state troopers said Friday.

On Dec. 3, Alaska State Troopers were dispatched to the small village of Venetie when after receiving alerts that two children had arrived at a neighbor’s house and were suffering from cold-related injuries, according to a news release from authorities.

The older child had became nervous when the power went out in the home, prompting him to carry the 18-month-old to another while, while dressed only in light clothing and socks, authorities said. At the time, the temperature in Venetie — a village of about 175 people — was 31 degrees below zero.
