BULLHEAD CITY, AZ - An Arizona man is facing possible child abuse charges after Bullhead City police say he left his 2-year-old great-granddaughter in a scorching vehicle when he went inside an IHOP restaurant.
The Mohave Valley Daily News reports that 70-year-old Billy Joe Moore told police he forgot that the child was in the car Tuesday. Police say she was left in the car for around 30 minutes.
Bullhead City Police Department Emily Fromelt says a witness called police after spotting the girl crying and "sweating profusely with an extremely red face." She says 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.
