An Atlanta, Georgia, dad was arrested Monday after witnesses say he left his 3-month-old baby in a hot car while he appeared in court.
According to CNN affiliate WSB, Courtney Kidd told police that he misunderstood when guards said he couldn't bring the child's car seat through security, so he put his child back in the car and cracked the windows.
A woman, Phoebe Fletcher, saw what happened and managed to get the little girl out.
“I’ve been in my car for the last five minutes and I’m perspiring and my body is overheated, so you can imagine how hot it was for the 3-month-old child who was left in this car,” Fletcher told WSB.
"The doors were locked, so I kind of got one of the windows down and I just took her; took her the diaper bag,” Fletcher said, WSB reports. “Soon as I got her she [the baby] was smiling.”
WSB reports Kidd is facing child cruelty charges. The baby is now with her grandmother.
