2 toddlers rescued from roof of Indiana home

Columbus — Firefighters rescued two toddlers who had crawled out a window onto the roof of their family's central Indiana home.

Columbus fire Capt. Mike Wilson says crews were called to the home Sunday after a 911 caller reported seeing the children on the roof. Firefighters used a ladder to climb onto the roof over a front room of the house to reach the 2-year-olds and carry them down.

Wilson tells The Republic medics determined the children were fine despite being outside in the 50-degree weather.

Police Lt. Matt Myers says the parents told officers they had put the children in a crib for a nap and thought they were asleep, but they somehow opened a window and climbed out.

He says no charges have been filed against the parents.
