MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- The sweltering heat wave in Alabama has prompted police to remind parents not to leave their children unattended in a vehicle.
Mobile Police Chief Phillip Garrett said in a statement Monday that two women were arrested in separate incidents on Saturday -- each were booked into Mobile Metro Jail on charges of endangering the welfare of a child.
Garrett said the stranded children were rescued by concerned citizens and were not injured.
