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.

How to see Alaska’s beautiful glaciers before it’s too late

As Alaska’s glaciers recede, tour guides and tourists are dealing with the the consequences.

When Alaska was admitted into the Union in 1959 it was officially nicknamed ‘The Last Frontier.’ It’s as suitable a label now as it was then: the majority of the state’s land — an area approximately 2.5 times the size of Texas — remains wilderness. Some peaks here have never recorded a single human ascent. The sweeping, mountainous panorama suggests an unshakable permanence. In actuality, though, much of this landscape is shifting at an alarming pace.
