PHOENIX — A young child was rushed to the hospital over the weekend after being left unattended in a vehicle in the West Valley, authorities said.
Deputies responded to the area of El Mirage and Camelback roads in Litchfield Park around 7:20 p.m. Sunday and found an unresponsive 3-year-old, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said.
“It was determined that the child had been left in the vehicle unattended for an unspecified time,” Sgt. Monica Bretado said in a press release.
The 32-year-old mother arrived home with her other children and rushed inside, leaving the 3-year-old unattended, according to the release.
The child was in stable but critical condition and was expected to make a full recovery, MCSO said Wednesday.
The investigation is ongoing. No other information was made available.
