2 Kids Found in Filthy Abandoned Apartment: Miami PD

Two children were left in deplorable conditions in an abandoned apartment in Miami-Dade.

According to Miami Police, there was some sort of fight between a man and a woman at the apartment at 361 Northwest Seventh Avenue.

When officers arrived, the man was nowhere to be found, but they found a woman in the middle of the street bleeding. She was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, her condition is not immediately known.

It was later discovered that two children who live with the woman were left behind in that abandoned apartment with no water, no electricity and no parents.

"The girl was probably two, the boy was three," said Manny Gonzalez of Thunder Demoltion. "The girl was in diapers and the boy had no shirt on and they had no shoes."

A neighbor reportedly told demolition crews they could hear the children crying from inside the abandoned unit.

The conditions inside the apartment were deplorable, with piles of trash strewn about.

The conditions of the children are not immediately known. Police say the children's grandmother came to get them.

No further information was immediately available.
