Child rescued from hot car

Friday, June 13, 2008

It happened this afternoon at the Crosskeys Commons Shopping Center along the Blackhorse Pike in Washington Township, Gloucester County.

Around 1 p.m, a 60 year old Glassboro man left his two year old granddaughter sleeping in the car while he went shopping.

Witnesses noticed the child and called police, who responded and opened the car.

The girl was taken to nearby Kennedy Hospital with an elevated temperature. She's okay, and was returned to her mother.

The grandfather was handcuffed and arrested when he returned to the car, charged with recklessly endangering the welfare of a child. He's been released on bail. If convicted, he could face up to a year in jail.
