TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson mom is facing two misdemeanor charges after police say she left her 3-month-old son inside a locked car with no air conditioning for about 15 minutes around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Police say the woman went into a bank counter inside the Fry's store near Grant and Swan, but forgot her infant son in the car.

About ten minutes later, several people in the parking lot noticed the child and called 911. Tucson Fire arrived within three minutes and pulled the baby out without injuries.

The woman was ticketed for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and leaving a child unattended in a vehicle. Both are misdemeanors.

If her child was injured, we're told the woman could have been charged with a felony.

"We get there and if this child's any distress whatsoever, we're going to take appropriate action, which is to make entry,” said Tucson Fire Department Capt. Chris Jurvig. “We'll break a window away from the child to avoid getting glass on them and get that child out as soon as possible to a cooler environment so we can assess them."

Tucson Fire crews said they've responded to more than 40 cases like this since June 1 this year.
