A Florida babysitter was charged with child neglect Friday after she fell asleep on the toilet and the 2-year-old in her care wandered into an alligator-infested canal.

Police said a witness called 911 when he found the unharmed boy around 2 p.m. on a Port St. Lucie canal bank where two alligators were spotted, according to TCPalm.

The babysitter, Brandy Albright, was discovered asleep on her toilet in the efficiency where she lived next to the boy and his mother. It was unclear how police determined where the boy lived.

The child was returned to his mother, and 26-year-old Albright was taken to jail.
