Authorities say two toddlers survived alone for about two days after they were passengers in a wreck that killed their mother in south Arkansas. The Ouachita County Sheriff's Office says a 3-year-old boy was found Monday wandering in Camden, about 85 miles southwest of Little Rock.

Police then discovered a car in a ravine not visible from the road. The toddler's mother was found dead, and his 1-year-old brother awake and alert in his car seat. That child is being treated for dehydration.
