Thirty-three-year-old Phoenix mother, Sandra Holguin, faces child abuse charges after she allegedly left her young daughter in a hot car for almost an hour while she shopped at a Kmart in Tolleson, reports The Arizona Republic.
According to Tolleson police spokesman, Sergeant Obed Gaytan, several Good Samaritans tried to free the two-year-old girl from the vehicle before police arrived Friday night. The high temperature that day was reported at 106 degrees.
Police were able to remove the girl and placed her inside an air-conditioned patrol car to cool her off. Tolleson Fire Department paramedics also gave her medical attention and water.
