after baby found in car

PHOENIX, AZ  –  A Phoenix woman is facing child abuse charges for allegedly shopping and leaving her 6-month-old baby alone inside an unlocked car with the engine running and keys in the ignition.

Phoenix police say 29-year-old Ciera Carter was arrested Sunday night, but has since been released from jail pending an Oct. 3 court appearance.

Arizona Department of Child Services officials say the baby still is a ward of the state from a prior child abuse instance involving Carter.

Police say Carter told them she been shopping at a store for a minute while the infant was unattended and strapped into the car seat.

But police say surveillance video showed Carter was in the store for 14 minutes.

They say the car’s air conditioning was running and the windows were rolled up.

  3. Set a “TASK” with alarm in smartphone every time you drive Child/Children , set alarm 10-30 minutes early before arrival at destination to drop off Child/Children (depending on distance).
  4. DO NOT TURN OFF ALARM UNTIL CHILD/CHILDREN ARE DROPPED OFF, CONTINUE TO HIT SLEEPER, SET AT 5 MINUTES, UNTIL TASK IS COMPLETED.

2-Year-Old Child Left in Hot Car in
Grand Prairie Hospitalized

Grand Prairie, TX  –  A child left inside a hot car Wednesday in Grand Prairie has been hospitalized in good condition, police say.

Grand Prairie police responded at about 3 p.m. to a shopping center near State Highway 360 and Camp Wisdom Road, where they said an elderly relative who was watching the 2-year-old girl had forgotten about the child in the backseat when going into a store.

The relative was inside for a brief time before remembering the child and calling for help, police said.

Medics transported the young girl to Medical Center Arlington, where she was responsive.  She was later taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth for further treatment.

Police said there have been no charges filed against the relative, but that could be possible.
