A Brooklyn woman is waiting to be arraigned after police say she left her three young children alone in their apartment this weekend for almost an hour.

Firefighters were called to 1489 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights Sunday afternoon to look into a water leak near Jasmine Torres' apartment.

They discovered three children, ages four, two and one, and waited with them for about 40 minutes until Torres came back.

When she returned, she was arrested.

The 25-year-old is charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
