BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. — An Arizona man is facing possible child abuse
charges after Bullhead City police said he left his 2-year-old
great-granddaughter in a scorching vehicle when he went inside an IHOP
The Mohave Valley Daily News reported that 70-year-old
Billy Joe Moore told police he forgot that the child was in the car Tuesday. The child was left inside the car for around 30 minutes.
Bullhead City Police Department Emily Fromelt said a witness called police
after spotting the girl crying and “sweating profusely with an extremely red
face.” Fromelt said a thermometer registered the temperature around 130 degrees inside the car.
Medical personnel examined the child and she was declared OK.
The Mohave County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case.
It was not known if Moore had an attorney.
