Man Left Kids in Car in Casino Parking Lot

A man has been charged with child neglect without great harm after security guards found his two children in a pickup truck in the parking garage of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Security called police when they discovered a three-month-old infant and 19-month-old toddler in their carseats in the truck with a movie playing. The infant was said to be screaming. Security guards told police the children were left there for an hour with the windows barely cracked.

The children’s father appeared carrying takeout containers and drinks. He claimed that he left the kids in the truck while he went to get food. The children were taken to the hospital for evaluation and safe keeping.
