SSC, Neb. woman will not face charges after accidentally leaving her daughter in the car


ELK POINT, S.D. (KTIV) - Authorities have decided not to file charges against a South Sioux City, Nebraska woman who accidentally left her two-year old daughter in the car for nine hours while she went to work earlier this month.

The Union County, South Dakota State's Attorney's office says it has investigated and determined it was an accident and Anna Salas was distraught when she realized what had happened.

The office also points out that the Department of Human Services did an assessment and decided against taking any action.

Temperatures were in the teens the day of the incident, but the child was dressed in a winter coat and restrained in a car seat and she was awake, alert and unharmed when her mother realized what had happened and ran out to get her.
