SEABROOK, N.H. (WHDH) -- Police in New Hampshire are investigating a woman they said forced her two young children to have a dangerous drink.

Crews responded to a home in Seabrook after the mother allegedly made her children drink bleach. The mother and her two children were rushed to a hospital.

A neighbor can’t believe something like this would happen, but just hopes the kids are alright.

“They were really quiet…We didn’t know what was going on. I don’t know, everybody was wondering. I just hope the kids are okay,” said a neighbor.

Police plan to arrest the mother once she’s released from the hospital. The children have both been released and arrangements for their care and custody are being made through the family court.
