NY dad forgets baby in car for 8 hours on cold day

COLONIE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a New York man who left his 1-year-old son in his car for eight hours in frigid weather hasn’t been charged.

Police in the Albany suburb of Colonie tell local media outlets that the man forgot to drop off his son and left the child strapped in the back seat of the car when he parked outside his office Thursday morning.

Officials say the man didn’t realize his mistake until he returned to the car around 4 p.m. He called for an ambulance and the boy was checked out at a hospital and released. Police say the baby didn’t suffer any injuries despite temperatures that didn’t top 15 degrees.

Police aren’t saying if they plan to charge the father, whose name hasn’t been released.

It wasn't blatant negligence. It was an honest mistake.
