NORTH PORT, Fla. – A Florida baby is in state care after authorities say his mother left him in a vehicle with the windows rolled up.
Kasandra Beekman, 24, was charged Friday with felony child neglect, according to police.
Officers say she left her 8-month-old son in her car with the windows rolled up and the engine turned off Thursday while shopping at a Wal-Mart in North Port.
Witnesses called 911, and a store manager and a customer gave the baby first aid until paramedics arrived.
The baby was treated at a hospital and released to the Department of Children and Families.
Beekman was being held on $25,000 bail.
