NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — Another Connecticut parent has been charged with leaving a child alone in a car.
Thirty-seven-year-old Brian Healy of Norwalk was arrested by local police Sunday night. Authorities say he left his infant daughter alone in his car while he shopped at a Wal-Mart, and he was charged with felony risk of injury to a minor.

The Hour newspaper reports that a witness called authorities after seeing the child sleeping in the car. Police say Healy told them he forgot his daughter was in the back seat.
A phone number for Healy couldn’t be found Tuesday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
Several Connecticut parents have been charged with leaving their children alone in vehicles this summer. A 15-month-old Ridgefield boy died in July after his father allegedly left him in a hot car. No charges have been filed in that case.
