Montreal police today had to deal with another case of a young child left alone in a hot car in a mall parking lot.
They say around 11:15 this morning, a patrol officer found a young child, about a year old, sitting in the back seat of a car in the parking lot at Galeries D'Anjou.
The officer broke the car's window to rescue the child.
The child's mother appeared shortly afterward. She was given a $60 ticket and left the scene with her child, but police suggest she could also face criminal charges.
