(CBS Connecticut) — A Groton man is charged with leaving a six-month-old baby in a car while he shopped. Groton police say the temperature inside the car was over 130 degrees when they finally got inside — and they estimated the child had been inside at least half an hour. The baby was alert and breathing, and was taken to Lawrence and Memorial Hospital.
33-year-old Brian Pavano is charged with risk of injury to a minor. Police say they got a call from an anonymous citizen shortly after 2:30 telling them the child was in the car parked at the Shop-Rite Supermarket. When authorities got there, only one window was open, and it was open less than an inch.
Police also called the Department of Children and Families.
