There is no other way to describe these two individuals. They are quite simply unfit to be parents:
Five children were found locked in a van at the SkyCity casino car park building while their parents gambled.
The children have been placed in Child Youth and Family care and their parents are under investigation.
The children, whose ages ranged from five months to eight years old, were found in the van around 11am on Sunday morning.
SkyCity said their surveillance recordings indicated the children had been locked in the vehicle for about 45 minutes.
A couple returning to their car heard the children crying and notified SkyCity security staff.
Staff found the parents upstairs gambling in the casino.
The family was taken to Auckland central police station.
