On Tuesday, July 28th, this 38-year-old woman broke down in tears after she realized that she got caught leaving her one-year-old baby in a hot car while she went into Walmart. The mother left the infant in the vehicle for about 45 minutes, which reached internal temperatures of 120 to 138 degrees. Pedestrians saw the child in the parked car outside the Walmart store and reported the matter to the police.
When she came out of the store, she was taken into custody by the officers of the Owasso Police Department. She told officers that she forgot the child was in the car when she went into the store. The child was transported to St. John Medical Center in Owasso for treatment and was released into the custody of the father.
