Port Orange police arrested a woman after she allegedly made her children drink toilet bowl cleaner and then possibly drank the liquid herself Saturday, WESH-TV reported.
Police told the station they were called to a home on Timber Trail around 10:30 a.m. Saturday for a report of a suicide attempt.
Amelia West, 29, who told authorities she had been hearing voices, gave her children, ages 2 months and 2 years, the liquid after going to a neighbor’s home to ask if the neighbor knew Jesus. Earlier, she and her children got undressed, lay naked together on her bedroom floor and stood in her front yard naked, WESH-TV reported.
The two children were treated and released at a nearby hospital, according to police.
