Mother of the year right here.
What kind of mother, teen or not, intentionally leaves her two babies in a hot car for over 15 hours? Apparently mothers like 19-year-old Amanda Hawkins who found that partying was more important than the two little lives she brought into this world.
Hawkins was arrested in San Antonio but is expected to be transferred to Kerr County, Texas. The Kerr Sheriff’s office filed two counts of “abandoning or endangering a child.”
The two little girls died on June 8th after Amanda and a 16-year-old male showed up at the hospital with the toddlers: two-year-old Addyson Overgard-Eddy and one-year-old Brynn Hawkins. The girls were in grave condition were quickly transferred to university hospital in San Antonio.
Amanda also lied to hospital staff about what happened to the children:
Amanda advised hospital personnel that the two girls, herself and the 16 year old had been at flat rock lake and the girls were smelling flowers and that when they got ready to leave the one year old collapsed and shortly after that the two year old also collapsed.
An investigation was started and as a result it was determined that the two young girls had actually been left in their mother’s vehicle intentionally for over 15 hours, overnight on June 6, 2017 and until around noon on June 7, 2017, while she and other friends were inside a residence.
Upon discovering the girls, the mother attempted to bathe them and did not immediately want to take the girls to the hospital because she didn’t want to get into trouble.
“This is by far the most horrific case of child endangerment that i have seen in the 37 years that i have been in law enforcement,” Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer said. “Now with the death of the girls the charges could be upgraded after this case is presented to a grand jury. this case will be handled by 216th judicial district attorney.”
If you ask me, she deserves exactly what he did to those poor babies.
The investigation is ongoing.
