CHICAGO (CBS) — A car was towed with a baby inside Thursday afternoon, after police said a father left it illegally parked downtown while he ran into a store.
Around 11:45 a.m., a 5-month-old child was in a car parked in front of a fire hydrant at 95 E. Randolph St., police said.
When a city tow truck arrived, the tow truck driver saw the car seat in the vehicle, but did not see the infant because of the tint on the vehicle’s windows, police said.
The car was towed to the city impound lot.
When the baby’s father returned to where the car had been parked, he told police the vehicle was missing and the baby had been inside.
The baby was found in the car in the impound lot and was taken to a local hospital in good condition, police said.
