Mom Leaves Child In Car While Getting Nails Done

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ A 28-year-old Hartford woman is under arrest for leaving a child in a vehicle for over an hour this past Friday while she got her nails done.

Rosheena Francis is charged with risk of injury to a minor and reckless endangerment.

The 6-year-old was apparently in the 140-degree car with the windows rolled up while Francis was inside Lena’s Nails and Spa at 205 Burnside Ave. in East Hartford.

The child is expected to be OK.

It’s not clear if it’s her son.

Francis posted $75,000 bond and is due in court Aug. 13.
