A 14-month-old child was rescued from a locked car Tuesday morning after his grandfather apparently forgot he had left the boy there.

Phoenix police officers and Phoenix firefighters were called to an Ahwatukee business at 15633 N. 32nd St. at 9:15 a.m. in response to a child locked in a car with the windows rolled up and engine off, said Officer James Holmes of the Phoenix Police Department.

When officers arrived fire crews had the child out of the car. The boy was OK, Holmes said.

The boy’s 51-year-old grandfather told police he had left him in the car accidentally. An investigation revealed the child had been in the car for at least 20 minutes.

The grandfather was cited for child neglect, a Class 1 misdemeanor, and released. He was not booked into jail.

The child was released to his grandmother, who lives separate from the grandfather. Arizona Child Protective Services was called and advised of the incident and no history involving the family was found, Holmes said.
