Florida Mom Allegedly Leaves Toddler In Hot Car During Jail Visit

Florida mom arrested for leaving toddler in hot car outside jail

A Florida woman allegedly left her daughter in a hot car yesterday while she was visiting an inmate at the Orange County Jail in Orlando.

The child, who reportedly was sitting in the car alone outside the jail for about 20 minutes, is described as being either two- or three-years-old per various media accounts.

During this ordeal, the Orlando temperature was estimated to be 91 degrees Fahrenheit, along with a heat index of 110. Fortunately, a corrections officer patrolling the parking lot discovered the child and removed her from the vehicle. The good news is that responding EMTs determined that the child was unharmed.

The mom, identified according to Fox35 Orlando and other news outlets as Rachel Etienne, 21, allegedly admitted that she left the child by herself in the vehicle during the inmate visit, and was arrested by Orange County sheriff deputies. She faces a charge of child neglect after officers located her inside the facility at the visitor’s center. She was released on bail last night.
