Report: Woman says God, aliens told her to go see amusement park
YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - A woman accused of leaving her eight-month-old baby alone in the parking lot of a Carolina-based amusement park says God and aliens told her she needed to see the park.
Francis Greene and her boyfriend, Jason Lee, reportedly left the infant inside a truck in the Carowinds' parking lot Friday night around 8 p.m., according to a report from the York County Sheriff's Office.
Security at Carowinds found the vehicle abandoned in the drop-off area of the parking lot and found an eight-month old baby inside the vehicle, alone, and crying.
The guard called investigators and said it was nearly 20 minutes before Greene and Lee came back to the vehicle.
Lee told investigators that Greene wanted to see the park, so he came with her to see it. They reportedly initially took the little boy inside, but brought him back to the truck.
Greene told investigators that she "heard voices from God telling her to go to the park," the report states.
"The voices that she thought were God, were actually extra-terrestrials, and that they wanted her to leave her body behind and come with them," deputies said Greene told them. "Greene said that she decided against that because she wanted to stay with her family."
Greene reportedly had a gash on her palm from the fence of the park trying to get back out.
The little boy was taken into protective custody by investigators.
Greene was treated by paramedics and taken to Piedmont Medical Center, in Rock Hill, to be treated for her injuries and be evaluated.
She was charged with unlawful neglect of a child and filing a false police report. She was cited for trespassing.
Lee was charged with unlawful neglect of a child and trespassing.
