Parents of an infant have been charged after officers rescued a baby trapped in a hot car for around 45 minutes at a Costco parking lot in Markham, York Regional Police said.




Around 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday, officers arrived to the scene near Hwy. 7 and Woodbine Ave., after receiving a call for a baby trapped in a car.

When they arrived on scene, they determined that the baby needed to be rescued, and smashed a window of a car to retrieve the infant, police said.

The baby was then placed in the police cruiser to cool down and assessed by York Paramedics until the parents returned from shopping.

The parents were charged on scene under the Child and Family Services Act for leaving a child unattended.




Police say the infant has been returned to the parents.

Paramedics determined that the baby, under a year old, is healthy.

    They should have been charge. Because they could have taken the baby in the store with them.

    Yea I believe the parents should have been charged for leaving the child unattended in the wether they would have had air on in the car or not that a endangerment to a child and the child could have died and also they were shoppin for about 45 minutes so that goes to show that it was purposely not that they forgot you were pregnant for a while 9 months so u can’t do u forgot about the baby
