Seriously a Connecticut mother left her infant in the car while working out at the local gym??
I don’t even know how it is possible, that a parent would even consider doing this!! With all of the news out there about the dangers of leaving children in hot cars, you would think that the only way it would happen could be by accident. This was no accident!
A mother in Stamford, CT. According to the police, Hiroko Kurihara left her 4-month-old infant in the car not once, but twice yesterday while she worked out at a local gym in the morning and running errands in the afternoon.
Police were notified after a local day care worker heard the baby crying in the car in a parking garage in the middle of the day. As police and firefighters attempted to break into the car, Kurihara returned. She told police that she had left the child in the car for about an hour earlier that morning.
Kurihara was arrested on the spot and charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor and two counts of unattended child left in a car. She’s being held on $10,000 bond, and the baby was placed with the father.
