Down the thruway in Albany, one woman was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor after allegedly leaving her child in the car alone for 90 minutes.
A tearful little 3-year-old girl was left alone in her mother's car for 90 minutes. Eventually, the little girl wandered around an apartment building looking for help before a neighbor called 911. According to Times Union, the girl's mother, 20-year-old Krystyl A. Knockwood of Troy, was visiting a friend inside an apartment building and had not checked on her daughter. So, her three year old was left ALONE in the car.
Knockwood was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor after allegedly leaving the child unattended, police said.
Police called Rensselaer County Child Protective Services and handed the girl over to her grandmother."
How in the world does this even still happen anymore? Honestly, why would you think leaving your child in the car is OK while you are inside a friends home? Absolutely ridiculous.
