Mom: Child welfare officials were OK with cage for toddler

State police in Schuylkill County say they found a 22-month-old child locked in a homemade "cage" made of plywood on Wednesday.

Kutz refused to tell police how long he'd left the children or where he went on Wednesday, Robin said.

The newborn, who is 1 day old, was in a vehicle seat, the baby, who is 1 year old, was in a playpen and the oldest, a 22-month-old, was found in a wooden cage that was locked, state troopers in Schuylkill County told the Reading Eagle. Kutz called an ambulance for her just 12 hours later after she suffered heavy bleeding. Police eventually arrested Cecil Kutz, 38, the Eagle reported. Trooper Thomas Robin told The Associated Press that the woman was taken to hospital and underwent surgery. He remained jailed Thursday and didn't yet have an attorney.

"It wasn't easy to look at", state police Sgt. Fred Krute said at a news conference.

Hospital staff notified state police about the toddlers and newborn at home alone and that's when troopers made the alarming discovery. In the cage was a foam mattress, toys, and a sippy cup.

The father confessed to using the cage as a makeshift crib to keep the boy "safe" at night. The statement said Cornell's family would be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause and asked for privacy. "He told me he's done it in the past, that it's not the first time he put him in that contraption", Robin told the AP.

Police in Pennsylvania say a 22-month-old boy has been found locked inside a makeshift wooden cage while his day-old sister and 1-year-old brother were found alone in the same house.

George says she's angry Kutz left their kids alone while she was hospitalized after suffering complications during childbirth.

The baby was rushed to hospital for evaluation and all three children were taken into the care of the county's Children and Youth Services.

All three children were taken into protective custody.

But Tiffany George, the mother of the child, disputes the charge and calls the structure a playpen, according to a report from CBS 21 News.

Kutz was unable to post bail and remains in the Schuylkill County Prison while he awaits his next court date.
