Eastern Kentucky Father Charged After Son Left In Hot Car
LONDON, Ky.-- Police have charged an eastern Kentucky father with wanton endangerment for leaving his son in a hot car for nearly two hours.
London Police say Kenneth Scott Robinson simply forgot his son was in the car when he left the toddler to go into work on Monday.
WKYT-TV reports the boy was rushed to a nearby hospital and is expected to fully recover.
Police Chief Stewart Walker says Robinson is "pretty shook up" over the incident and is "an emotional wreck." A witness who saw the boy in the car says he was red-faced and unresponsive.
Last week an 8-month-old infant left in a car in Louisville died of heat exposure. Police have not charged the parents of the child, who was supposed to be taken to a daycare.
