According to a press release from the agency, a woman was driving south just before 10.30 a.m. in the US when she saw the undressed toddler trying to cross the road ahead of her.

The motorist drove the road to block the boy's path and prevent other vehicles from hitting him.

A postman also stopped to help and held the child when the deputies responded to the scene.

In the video, one of the delegates says he can find the parents of the toddler because of an earlier case involving the family that took place last year.

In that incident, reported in January 2018, Tirado was accused of child neglect after one of her three children called 911 and responding delegates arrived to find two children left alone with an aggressive dog in the house, along with unsecured shotgun and ammunition.

After recognizing Tirado and Krueger & # 39; s son from his previous interaction with the family, the deputy went to the trailer next to the highway and noticed that the couple fainted and foamed to the mouth, & apparently each under the influence of drugs & # 39 ;, according to the release.

Initially, Tirado and Krueger did not respond, but eventually they came after the assistant sheriff screamed at the wall and caught their attention.

In the camera video of the body, they both look dazed and unmoved, as the deputy says their son was almost close to being smothered by a car & # 39 ;. & # 39;

During the investigation, the assistant sheriff placed the child, still dressed in a full diaper and covered with mosquito bites, in the back seat of his patrol car because broken beer bottles were on the floor and several knives were within his reach in the garden.

& # 39; The house itself was in poor condition, with garbage, dirty clothes and dirty dishes piled up, no separate children's room, and only one bed, that was just a mattress without sheets, & # 39; said the sheriff's office. & # 39; When asked about breakfast, Tirado said that the toddler usually "pulls bread and things". & # 39;

& # 39; I've had enough of both of you, & # 39; the assistant sheriff tells the couple as he instructs Tirado to put her hands behind her back and crawl into his patrol vehicle at the back.

When Krueger asks why they are arrested, the substitute answers: & # 39; what do you mean, & # 39; Why? & # 39; & # 39;

Krueger later claimed that he and his girlfriend fell asleep after taking painkillers and that their son left the house through a broken door

Krueger continues to press on the deputy and asks him to explain what he has done.

& # 39; What did you do? The point is that you didn't do that, & the officer replies with anger in his voice. & # 39; You have not watched your child, your child is on the road … this is just a circus. & # 39;

Krueger makes a final attempt to defend himself and says: & # 39; this is not at all fair & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Yes, it's not fair for your son, that's who it's not fair, & # 39; the officer fires back.

The couple's son was detained at the Ministry of Children and Families.

Tirado and Krueger were booked in the Volusia County Branch Jail with a $ 5000 bond each.

After his release from prison, Krueger said WFTV that he and his girlfriend fell asleep after taking painkillers for an unspecified condition, and that their son left the house through a broken door.

& # 39; I love my child. I want the best for them, & he said.
