WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania woman who allegedly left her 2-year-old son in a hot car before another woman rescued the boy has been charged with child endangerment.

Wilkes-Barre Township police on Tuesday filed that charge and a citation for leaving the boy in the car unattended against 28-year-old Rosemine Chery.

Police say the boy’s temperature was 102 degrees when he was pulled from the car about 2 p.m. Sunday. The car was parked in a grocery store lot and the woman who rescued the boy told police she was able to get the door open because one window had been left open a crack.

Police gave the boy water and had the store make an announcement about him. Police say Chery arrived seven minutes later.

Online court records don’t list a defense attorney.
