“A Long Island mother was arrested Friday for leaving her baby inside a hot car while she went shopping inside a mall, reports CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan.
Police said the jet black Mercedes was parked directly in the blistering sunlight, with the engine turned off. A couple of windows were barely cracked — in the back — and alone a 14-month-old toddler — strapped into a car seat – was left sweltering.
The mother … had no explanation.”
……. the senselessness of some people astounds me.
