COLONIE, N.Y. (January 25, 2013)--A New York man who left his 1-year-old son in his car for eight hours in frigid weather didn’t realize his mistake until he got a call from his wife.
Police in the Albany, N.Y., suburb of Colonie said the man forgot to drop off his son at daycare and left the child strapped in the back seat of the car when he parked outside his office Thursday morning.
Officials say the man received a call from his wife at around 4 p.m. inquiring about the infant.
He called for an ambulance and the boy was checked out at a hospital and released.
Police say the infant didn't suffer any injuries despite temperatures that didn't top 15 degrees that day.
Police said Friday they haven't determined if the father would be charged.
