HUDSON, N.H. (AP) — Police say a 3-year-old New Hampshire girl wrapped a retractable dog leash around her neck and couldn't breathe and her mother has been arrested and accused of neglecting her.

They say the toddler was left unattended in the living room of a home in Hudson for an extended period of time on Jan. 27 while the leash was on an ottoman and the toddler's mother was in a different room. They say the toddler's mother was paying attention to social media apps and not to her.

Police say the girl wrapped the leash tightly around her neck multiple times. They responded to a 911 call, found the girl alert and took her to a hospital.

Authorities have charged the toddler's 23-year-old mother with endangering the welfare of a child.
