Full story: Newsday

But we left the heat on! That was a Southampton couple's excuse for leaving their 9-week-old baby alone in the car while they were watching the Kentucky Derby at an Off-Track Betting site, Southampton Town ...

Do the kid a favor.
Take the baby away now and give it to someone who wants it, and wants to give it the time, care, attention and love it needs and deserves.

Well said! What idiots. And for the record to these morons, leaving the heat on in an idle vehicle can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. SO scary that people like that have the ability to procreate!

These are the same type of people who raise kids that do drugs, have accidents and get killed.
Do the baby a favor and take it away from them. Find it parents that give a damn unlike many others.

Wonder if the car doors were left unlocked. If so, some clown could of drove off with the car and kid. Then we might be reading about a more serious ending story here.

If they had to go to OTB so bad...they should have at least had one of them stay home with the baby or had a relative babysit. But since they just left the baby in the car unattended-they should get their azzes kicked!! Amen!

It would be bad enough if they just tried to get away with something like this, but the craziest part is that these people actually BELIEVE that they did nothing wrong... Having left the car running and heat on was a perfectly reasonable thing to do (according to mom) ... No harm, no foul ... Absolutely crazy ....

It is heartbreaking when I think of all of the people who are unable to have children and so desperately want them and then you have these parents who have given birth to a healthy baby and seem to see it as an incovenience. I agree with the above sentiments - take the baby away now and give it to someone who cares.

These "parents" need to be investigated further. This sounds like just the tip of the iceberg.

Morons! These parents do NOT deserve a child! If the doors were unlocked, they are lucky the car didn't get stolen with baby in it! Idiots!
