Woman leaves infant in hot car during strip club audition
Two women are in trouble with the law for the incident.
Two women face charges after an infant was left in a hot car outside of a strip club in Tennessee as the child’s mother was onstage for an audition, according to multiple reports.
Kelsey McMurtry, 24, was auditioning at Deja Vu Showgirls in downtown Nashville while her daughter sat outside in a car with the windows rolled up around 4 p.m. Thursday, police told WKRN. Passersby noticed the girl and called authorities.
In a warrant, officials said it was 72 degrees outside when officers arrived and temperatures inside the car had likely topped 100 degrees. The girl was wearing a heavy coat and drenched with sweat, WKRN reported. Witnesses estimated she spent at least 30 minutes in the car.
She was taken to a hospital for treatment, where the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services responded to care for her.
