CARY, NC–Social Services took custody of an infant after neighbors found her sleeping in a treetop. The child, whom authorities have only identified as Emma, was discovered by Darren and Tracey Holdt as the newlyweds went for a morning jog around their subdivision. The Holdts, themselves a childless couple, have the time and energy for that sort of thing.

Allegedly, little Emma had been left in the tree to rock in a wind-blown cradle, perched atop the bough by her woefully inept parents. Police say the parents were motivated by baby Emma’s need to, for the love of all things Holy, go to sleep. They are being charged with reckless endangerment.

    Social services? *narrows eyes* Or Rumplestiltskin? Wouldn’t be the first baby he got his hands on in questionable circumstances.

    More than likely, baby was perched in the highest treetop due to her PARENTS’ need to sleep.
