A grandmother was found having sex in the toilet of a local community gym while her 2-year-old grandson was in her care.

42-year-old April Purvis had been high on Xanax and morphine and had been drinking vodka.

A second child told police that he saw Purvis “having sex” in the bathroom at the Indian Hills community’s recreation centre, Boynton Beach, Florida, US.

Palm Beach Post reports that the child told police a man emerged from the bathroom and gave the child money to go away. When the boy returned, he saw Purvis unconscious on the bathroom floor holding both her grandson and a knife.

The young child though Pervis was dead and ran for help.

When police arrived the intoxicated granny was hardly able to open her eyes.

She and her grandson were taken to a hospital, where medics found that the 2-year-old child was dirty and wet.

Police checked Purvis’ apartment and found that it had had neither electricity nor running water.

The young boy was picked up by his mum, who told deputies that Purvis helps to care for him.

Purvis, who hasn’t been arrested before in Palm Beach County, was released from jail Tuesday afternoon on $3,000 bail.
