NORWALK, Conn. (AP) - Another Connecticut parent is accused of leaving a child alone in a car.

Thirty-seven-year-old Brian Healy of Norwalk was arrested Sunday night. Authorities say he left his infant daughter alone in his car while he shopped at a Wal-Mart in Norwalk. He’s charged with risk of injury to a minor.

The Hour newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1pck6pz ) that police said Healy told them he forgot his daughter was in the car.

A phone number for Healy couldn’t be found Tuesday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.

Several Connecticut parents have been charged with leaving their children alone in vehicles this summer.

A 15-month-old Ridgefield boy died in July after his father allegedly left him in a hot car. No charges have been filed in that case.
