Kids ages 2 and 5 found locked in trunk while mom shops at Walmart: ‘My babysitter didn’t show up’

“My babysitter didn’t show up.”

Bystanders stepped in after a Utah woman locked her two children — ages five and two — into the trunk of her vehicle while she shopped at a Riverdale Wal-Mart store.

Two women passing by a car owned by Tori Castillo, 39, heard shouting from their trunk and noticed the car shaking. They instructed the older child on how to activate the trunk’s emergency release and called 911.

“Several good Samaritans observed this and came to the aid of the children,” Riverdale police Lt. Casey Warren told the Utah Desert News.

When Castillo eventually emerged from the store, her excuse that her babysitter hadn’t shown up mattered little. She was arrested for child endangerment and her children were turned over to Child and Family Services.
