Toddler Left Alone at Home with Dead Mom for Three Days





A three-year-old boy was stranded with his mother’s lifeless body for three days.

After days of not seeing and hearing from Lydia Macdonald and her son Mason Martin, concerned relatives and neighbours called the police in the Lickley Court area of Perth and asked them to investigate.

Inside Lydia’s residence, investigators were shocked to discover the lifeless body of the 28-year-old mother. But they were even more surprised to see the youngster beside his mom’s corpse.

The investigators believe that Lydia died about two or three days earlier. However, the cause of her death is yet to be determined and they are treating the incident as “unexplained”.

Lydia’s distressed father Ron Macdonald thinks that his daughter died from an asthma attack but investigator still have to confirm this. Forensic officers have started investigating the cause of the young mom’s death.

The 66-year-old grandfather, who described Lydia as happy-go-lucky who lived life to the fullest, said his daughter absolutely adored Mason.

“He was her entire life. Everything she did was for him,” he added.

Ron also revealed that he and his family will be in charge of raising the toddler since they are Mason’s next of kin.

He was very sad to begin with, but has brightened up considerably. He has been told about his mum, but we’re not sure how much he understands. We’ll be looking after him,” he said.

Sadly, Mason’s father Bobby Martin passed away in December 2012 at the age of 26 due to “adverse effects of heroin and diazepam”.
