Mother Leaves Four Toddlers in Car in Sweltering Victorville Heat

VICTORVILLE – A mother was arrested after her three small children were left unsupervised in a vehicle in the sweltering heat on Wednesday afternoon. At around 12:25 p.m. deputies from the Victorville Station responded to the 15400 block of Vallejo Street for the report that the one male toddler and three female toddlers were left inside a vehicle for around 30 minutes during an approximately 100-degree day.

When deputies arrived they found a three-year-old female, two-year-old males, and a one-year-old male, who were locked inside a vehicle. The vehicle was turned off with all of the windows up authorities said. The kids were all in the back seat and there were no car seats inside the vehicle.
