A man arrested after leaving 18-month-old daughter in a hot car for almost 20 minutes in a Kroger parking lot Thursday afternoon in Baytown, according to ABC13 in Houston.
ABC13 said Gene Curry left his daughter in the car with the windows up. She was covered with a blanket inside the vehicle.
Baytown officers said if Gene was in the store a little longer, this could have been a tragic story.
Curry’s family told ABC13 that he loves his children, but what happened in the parking lot, there is no excuse for it.
Curry has been charged with child endangerment.
