SOUTH SALT LAKE — A woman is accused of leaving her child in a hot car for four hours while she apparently donated plasma.
According to charging documents, the woman was visiting CSL Plasma at 2978 S. State St. on July 9 when her 9-year-old son came into the business, hot and perspiring. A worker offered him some water and a cool place to sit, and then found his mother.
Some time after that, police were notified although the boy had said he didn't want to get his mom in trouble.
Documents state that when police arrived, it was a 99-degree day outside. The temperature inside the car was 120 degrees, with the windows cracked just a couple of inches.
The suspect, Andrea Noble, 33, was charged Thursday in 3rd District Court with class A misdemeanor child abuse.
