Child Locked in Hot Car in Wichita Released from Hospital

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A child who was locked inside of a hot car in a Wichita grocery store parking lot has been released from the hospital. KAKE-TV reports the girl was released Thursday into the custody of her mother. The Kansas Department of Children as well as the Exploited and Missing Children's Unit are investigating the Wednesday incident. Authorities say fire crews responded to a call of a child in a locked vehicle in a grocery store parking lot around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Wichita Fire Battalion Chief Andy Cole has previously said the child's mother arrived at the vehicle around the same time crews did. Cole said the mother unlocked the car and got the child out. The district attorney will decide if any charges will be filed.
