In a tragedy beyond words, a toddler lived on his own for days after his mother died suddenly while she was feeding his baby brother who choked to death.

The little boy, 2, was rescued by the police after a neighbour reported hearing a child cry constantly. The incident took place in an apartment in Hollywood, reports UK daily Mirror.

On their arrival, the cops found the woman dead in a sated position and the one-year-old was also dead, while strapped to his high chair.

The 45-year-old single mother allegedly adopted both the babies recently and hails from Sydney.

The toddler was taken to a hospital after spending two days with the dead bodies of his mother and little brother. He is recovering from his ordeal.
