A New Hampshire mom was arrested this week after she left her 2-year-old son unattended in the car in a Target parking lot.
Dina Dambaeva says that she was only popping into the store to return something, an errand she thought would take no more than five minutes. So she left the car with its engine running, little Matthew strapped happily in his car seat. Those five minutes ended up stretching into a half hour. Police arrived and placed Dina under arrest, charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
