2 Accused Of Leaving Kids In Car

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a man and woman have been arrested after allegedly leaving three young children in a minivan while gambling at a casino.

Officials said security guards at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh were alerted at 3:41 p.m. Saturday that the children were alone in the vehicle in the parking garage. They say the 3- and 10-year-old boys were left with baby bottles, diapers and baby wipes for the 10- month-old girl.

Officials say surveillance cameras indicated that the woman had left two hours earlier to go into the casino, while the man left about a half-hour before the children were found.
