Nicolla Rushton

An unnamed, off duty police officer in England's Burton upon Trent, saw a toddler wandering the street. The officer, who was off duty and driving in his car with his wife, asked the toddler where she was going, to which the child replied, "I am going to nursery. I can't wake mummy up."

The police officer took the toddler back to her home and discovered her mother had passed away. The toddler's mother, 30-year-old Nicolla Rushton had died, under circumstances police are not treating as suspicious. It is heartbreaking nonetheless.
