Yardley Mother Facing Charges After Leaving Infant In Car

Posted: Updated:
LOWER MAKEFIELD, Pa. -

A Yardley Mother is facing charges, after police say she left her 10 week old daughter unattended in her car while shopping at a Lower Makefield drugstore.

Police say 47-year-old Cynthia Kelly left the baby in the car with the motor running shortly after 2pm on May 31st.

The store's surveillance cameras showed that the child was left in the car for about four minutes before the baby was spotted in its car seat by a man in the parking lot.

The man walked into the store searching for the child's parent, and told police Kelly came forward saying the child was hers, and then continued to wait in line to pay for her items, prompting the man the contact police.

Police headed to Kelly's home to check on the welfare of the child, where Kelly admitted to leaving the child in the car, after Googling to see if it was in fact legal for her to do so.

After being examined by paramedics, it was determined the baby did not require emergency treatment.

Kelly is now facing charges of endangering the welfare of children, and leaving a child unattended in a vehicle.

Police determined the temperature was around 75 degrees that day.
