Father Arrested for Leaving Baby in Car

1 min read

The police in Madrid have arrested a man for apparently accidentally locking his 16-month-old baby in the car for more than 2 hours.

Officers from both the local and national police arrived at the scene having been called by witnesses who saw the baby inside the car.

The officers broke the car´s window in order to gain access and rescue the child, who had vomited and was sweating. The child was immediately taken to the hospital Niño Jesús for treatment, although in a stable condition, in a non-life-threatening condition thanks to the actions of all involved.

The officers contacted relatives of the child, who said that the man had “forgotten” to take the child to nursery.

Having been advised of the child´s location, the father attended the hospital and was promptly arrested.
