Employees and shoppers at FoodMaxx in Bakersfield discovered a van on Wednesday that had two children left alone in a van on a hot day in Bakersfield, CA. The kids’ mother, Melissa Medel, 38, was later arrested on charges of child cruelty for allegedly leaving her kids alone while she shopped.
“The whole van, the windows were all up, The van was actually on. The little boy ended up unlocking the door so we could get into the van and the air wasn’t even like cold. The car was on, and the AC was on but the inside of that car was hot.”FoodMaxx employee Mayra Law told KABC.
