Hong Kong police are searching for the parents of a pair of five-month-old twins after the boys were found unattended in a village house.

Police received a call from the infants’ 50-year-old grandmother shortly before 11am on Tuesday. Emergency personnel were sent to the house in Tung Chan Wai on the San Tin section of Castle Peak Road near Lok Ma Chau border control point. “The grandmother went to visit the babies and found the pair unattended in the house,” a police spokesman said.

No injuries were found on the boys and they were taken to North District Hospital in Sheung Shui for a check-up. The spokesman said police were treating the case as cruelty to a child. No one had been arrested.

In Hong Kong, ill-treatment or neglect of a child carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail. In March, two women were arrested for suspected child neglect after leaving their children – a one-year-old boy and a five-year-old girl – unattended in their village home in Fanling. The case came to light when the girl became hungry and asked a neighbour for food. The two children were unhurt.

5 month old babies obviously can't feed themselves or get help when they need it. They are helpless babies. And for these adults to leave them unattended, says a lot about them. They are held accountable for the little ones that can't fend for themselves.
