A Queens man was arrested yesterday after allegedly leaving his baby in his car. According to the Daily News, "Robert Brown left his 7-month-old daughter in his red Mitsubishi outside a laundromat on Cross Bay Blvd. in Ozone Park... The windows were rolled up and the fan was on, but there was no air conditioning. Temperatures outside hovered in the mid-80s about 2:20 p.m."

While it's unclear how long the baby was left in the car, Brown, who was found nearby was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. The baby was taken to the hospital for observation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has said that temperature in an unattended car—even on a warm day—can rise almost 20 degrees within the first 10 minutes. And in NJ, a man was charged with animal cruelty after leaving his dogs in his car while it was 100 degrees outside: "[The] owner said he had left the car running and the air conditioning on while he was inside the restaurant in Neptune Sunday... the owner believes the dogs must have hit a button and turned on the defroster instead."
