Charges Filed After Child Left in Hot Car

KELLY TOWNSHIP — Charges have been filed in Union County against a mother accused of leaving her child in a hot car.

According to state police, the child was unharmed.

    Don’t leave anything in your car you do not want to kill, kids or otherwise. A “I’m just running in for milk.” may cost your kid its life if you get diverted for some unforeseen reason (i.e heart attack, some other medical condition, etc.) and people attending to you may be to preoccupied to notice the child/pet dying. Just not worth it in the long run for the slight hassle of taking them with you. Or in the case of a pet, leave them home.

      I would imagine it would be child endangerment. And being she was parked in front of a WALMART and she was too lazy to even take her kid out of the car, I highly doubt she went anywhere other than to WALMART. Better stay in college a little longer.
