Parents arrested after Tenn. toddler rescued from railroad tracks

ROCKWOOD, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities have arrested the parents of a toddler found alone on railroad tracks in Rockwood.

The Knoxville News Sentinel cited an officer's report which said a witness saw the 2-year-old on the rails and picked him up shortly before a train came through the town on Saturday.

Jonathan Noah White, who is 30, and 24-year-old Rahab Jaramillo were arrested and booked into the Roane County Jail on charges of aggravated child abuse and neglect.

The incident report states the child's grandmother told police the boy was often left with her, but she was on "too many medications" to watch him. The boy was put into Department of Children's Services custody.
