  • Terri Hymes, 30, was charged with disorderly conduct, public drunkeness, endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person after leaving her 2-year-old son in a hot car while she got drunk inside of a Pittsburgh bar, reports AJC.com.

    Archie Howard, 27, who identified himself as the child’s stepfather, faces the same charges.

    Pittsburgh police were called to the scene around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

    “And indeed, (they) found a 2-year-old male toddler in a car seat, in the back seat slumped over, sweating a lot and not being responsive,” said Pittsburgh Public Safety Information Officer Sonya Toler. “This was a very humid night.”

    According to investigators, the windows of the car were cracked, however the temperature at the time was 80 degrees with 70% humidity. The boy was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.
