    A central Pennsylvania woman faces charges after police say she allowed her 3-year-old son to handle a gasoline pump, and the child sprayed fuel onto himself.

    Manheim Township Police said Tuesday they filed a charge of endangering the welfare of a child against 46-year-old Theresa Moran Camera of Lancaster.

    Police say they were called to a Giant store on Jan. 19 and determined the boy removed the nozzle from the vehicle without releasing the handle.

    The vehicle had left by the time police arrived, but witnesses gave investigators a license number.

    Court officials say Camera doesn't have a lawyer on file, and a home listing couldn't be located
