A Blue Springs man faces child endangerment charges after he reportedly left his child in his car Thursday afternoon.
Blue Springs police said Viktor C. Jordan, 28, of Blue Springs, was doing business inside City Hall Thursday afternoon. While he was inside, Jordan had left his 11-month-old daughter inside his car.
“The car was locked, and the windows were rolled up,” Troy Pharr, spokesperson for the police, said. “The inside of the car registered about 109 degrees.”
A woman walking by the car noticed and called 911. The baby was treated by paramedics and was found to have suffered no injuries.
“The baby’s face was red and she was sweating,” Pharr said, adding the baby had been in the car about 15 minutes before she was noticed.
Jordan was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a city offense. He could face up to six months in jail and be fined $500.
