La. mom says she forgot infant was in sweltering car


Yet another parent is accused of leaving a baby inside a hot, locked car, but in this case, the child was rescued after a passerby called 911. (nola.com

Gloria Elzy, 44, told police she forgot the baby was in the car, which was parked in the parking lot of a strip mall. The baby was in the car for more than a half hour before being rescued.

Police said a responding officer broke into the car, where the temperature had reached at least 130 degrees.

Elzy noticed police surrounding her car and ran out “in shock,” police said, claiming that she had dropped her other children off at a friend’s house but forgot to leave the baby with them.

Elzy was arrested on the cruelty charge and another unrelated charge of failing to appear on a warrant. (wwltv.com
