By the time police arrived, the child’s 35-year-old mother had already returned to the vehicle. The child was evaluated by medics and then taken to St. Christopher’s Hospital. He was then released to his father.
The child’s mother was taken to Special Victims Unit where she was interviewed. On Tuesday, Special Victims announced they expect to file charges some time on Wednesday against the woman. According to investigators, surveillance video shows that the child was alone in the vehicle for almost 30 minutes before he was found.
