We have followed the cruelty of people who leave their pets in over-heated cars. Now we have Imene Nouis, 31, who was arrested after going into a tanning salon and leaving her 1-year-old baby in a car with closed windows and an internal temperature of 135 degrees.
It was 86 degrees outside so she should have known better. What is really shocking is the statistic that twenty-five children a year die as a result of being left in hot cars.
According to reports, a customer saw the child in the car and told the salon staff who found the baby crying and called police. However, the baby was returned ultimately to Nouis who says “I had a bad judgment.” Well, yes.
The fact that the baby was returned to Nouis so quickly is remarkable. She is now facing a child abuse charge.
