A Southern California mother is in jail after her crying baby was rescued from a parked car as temperatures soared into the 100s.
The woman had rolled up the windows and left the air conditioner running on her blue Nissan while she went into a North Hollywood supermarket on Monday.
KCBS-TV says a passer-by had noticed the crying girl inside the hot car in the Ralph's parking lot and notified Los Angeles police.
A police lieutenant says the air conditioner wasn't cooling the car's interior and the temperature outside was 104 degrees.
The woman, whose name hasn't been released, was arrested and booked for investigation of felony child endangerment. Bail is set at $100,000.
Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey says the year-old girl is in good condition at a hospital.
