Mom Leaves Infant In Car While In Bar Drinking With Friends
Christina Failla, 32, of Weston Connecticut has been arrested for leaving her 22-month-old child alone in a vehicle outside a bar as she had drinks with friends.
Norwalk police charged Christina on Sunday with felony risk of injury to a minor. A witness called police after finding the child sleeping alone in a locked car on Saturday night. Police officers broke the windows to rescue the infant from the vehicle.
Paramedics checked the infant and thankfully there was no injuries. Police said Christina told officers she had only been gone a few minutes, but a witness said she had several alcoholic drinks at the bar.
