Mother Charged with Leaving Child in Car



Springville, NY (WBEN) Erie County Sheriff's deputies charge a Town of Persia woman with leaving her baby inside her car at a Walmart in Springville.

Deputies say an employee alerted a store manager about the situation in the parking lot around 4:30pm Sunday.

A citizen also broke out a window of a car to allow the doors to be opened and the child removed.

The mother, 32 year old Jessica Hojnacki returned to vehicle and told deputies she forgot about the child inside
her car as she was running errands. Deputies determined the one year old child was in the car for roughly 30 minutes. The temperature in the car may have reached 109 degrees. The outdoor temperature was 75.

She's charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
