BROOKLYN -- A mother has been cited for child endangering for leaving her child in a running car while she went to a tanning appointment.
Police were called to the Tanpro USA location on Ridge Road this morning for reports of a 5-year-old left unattended in a car. According to a police report, the child was playing in the driver's seat of the car which was left running while the mother was inside tanning.
An employee of the tanning salon went to get the mother from her tanning bed session and the woman returned to her car.
Police say the mom was cited and then released.
