ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A Utah woman was arrested after she was found passed out in a motel with her baby vomiting out on the balcony.

Authorities say 36-year-old Amanda Lee Gardner is charged with felony child abuse involving a disabled child and misdemeanor intoxication.

Police were called to the Rodeway Inn motel in St. George Thursday night after the 1-year-old girl was seen vomiting and looking sick out alone on the second-story balcony.

Police said Gardner was found smelling of alcohol and passed out on the floor of the motel room.

Both were hospitalized. The child now in protective custody appeared to be suffering from hypothermia and dehydration.

It’s unclear how long the baby was outside but police do not believe she consumed alcohol.

Gardner’s attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.
