In Sacramento, investigators say a two-year-old boy survived alongside the body of his mother who had apparently been dead for at least six days.

The 36-year-old woman was found dead by Sacramento County Child Protective Services.

Neighbors say Lisa Gonzales was diabetic and suffered from anemia. Her two-year-old boy was found in the home, alive, and in relatively good health.

The health of the boy is being monitored by doctors and he has been placed in protective custody.

Just how the mother died has not yet been determined.
