AKRON, OH – Ironically, the cause of death of a two-year-old was the child’s name, winter.
Friday afternoon, Wynter Parker, was found frozen to death outside of her home. The child somehow was able to open the front door while her father was asleep and walked outside. Wynter’s mother left her and her older four-year-old brother in their father’s care as she left home for a few hours to run errands. When the mother returned home she discovered Wynter sitting on the porch unresponsive.
Wynter was rushed to the hospital by paramedics where she was later pronounced dead. The mother has established a GoFundMe account to help pay for the funeral expenses. Authorities have not said if anyone would face any charges.
“The death of losing a child, it’s like losing your breath and never catching it again. Today, I’m filled with deep sorrow, grief, complete emptiness and pure agony. I am filled with tremendous regret as I announce the passing of my two year old little girl, Wynter. While Wynter and her dad slept peacefully, Wynter being the growing, curious, ambitious toddler that she is awoken from her nap without disturbing Dad and left our home. No one was aware that she was outside in the snowfall, in freezing temperatures with life slipping away from her, dying. My little girl froze to death.
When I found her she was alone and unresponsive. My sweet little girl who was always so warm and full of life was now cold and lifeless.
She was immediately rushed to the hospital where a team of doctors tried everything they could to save my babygirl but within ours she succumbed to her injuries. There was nothing more that could be done. It was too late.
In this trying time, there’s no amount of money that could ease the pain of losing Wynter but hopelessly, I ask for the help of burying my baby Wynter. Due to extreme financial hardships, I am respectfully asking for donations to give her a proper burial. Anything will help. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for my family and I. I ask God to keep me covered in his mercy and guide me through my heartache.
Play In Peace Wynter Parker”
