HOUSTON, TX - A horrifying situation for some Texas parents. The camera they were using to monitor their two-year-old and keep her safe was hacked and what the hacker did was chilling.

For two years, Marc Gilbert and his wife have come to rely on their internet cameras. With them they could watch their two toddlers in their rooms. But, over the weekend, someone else was watching, too. Gilbert says he first heard a voice from down the hall as he and his wife got closer, what it was saying got worse.

"He said, 'Wake up, Allyson, you little (expletive).'" said Marc Gilbert

soon, he knew it was coming from the camera. Gilbert immediately pulled the plug and started doing research. He believes someone hacked his router as well as the camera. The person could see Allyson's name on her wall to call her by it.

He now wants to warn other parents about the danger. The only saving grace is that Allyson never heard a thing. She uses a cochlear implant and does not wear it when she sleeps.
