Police say he became distracted and simply forgot about his son. A father is facing charges after police say he left the toddler alone in a hot car for nearly two hours.
A father bailed out of jail late Monday after police charged him with wanton endangerment. London officers say Kenneth Scott Robinson left his two-year-old in his car while he went in to work.
"Little boy wasn't moving, wasn't making no kind of response," described witness Jonathan Northern, who was inside the insurance company where the boy's dad worked.
"Next thing I know it looked like I don't know if he's bleeding or what, he's real red and next thing I know they told us is we had to go and next thing I know there was 20 cops pulled in and they hauled off somebody to jail."
"Obviously he's pretty shook up," notes London Police Chief Stewart Walker of Robinson, "he's crying. He's really disturbed by what has happened. Obviously he's just an emotional wreck at this point in time."
Chief Walker says crews rushed the boy to a nearby hospital, and he is expected to make a full recovery.
