Seminole County Sheriffs Office(SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla.) — The mother of a 1-year-old found dead after being left in a hot car all day has been charged with negligent manslaughter, authorities in Florida said Saturday.

Kailyn Pollard, 29, was arrested on Friday hours after police in Seminole County said they were investigating the infant’s death. She made her first court appearance on Saturday.

Pollard’s daughter was found at a Wawa gas station in Sanford, Florida, at about 4:40 p.m. on Friday, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Department said.

According to an arrest report obtained by Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV, Pollard apparently forgot to drop her daughter off at day care before showing up to work at 8:30 a.m. The child remained in the car all day until Pollard left at about 4 p.m.

The mother drove to Olive Garden to pick up dinner and then stopped for gas when she realized her daughter was in the rear-facing car seat in the back, according to the arrest report.

The child was already dead when authorities arrived at the gas station, police said.

Pollard was released from jail on $20,000 bond, according to WFTV, and will be back in court on Oct. 23.

The high temperature in Sanford on Friday was 94 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The child was one of two found dead in a hot car in central Florida on Friday, according to WFTV.

Another child was found in a hot car in Orlando at about 2 p.m. on Friday and taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital where he was pronounced dead. No charges have been filed in that case.

Father charged with neglect after photo of baby crawling in street goes viral

iStock/Thinkstock(LAKEWOOD, N.J.) — A week after a passerby’s photo of a toddler crawling in the street went viral, a New Jersey man has been arrested and charged with neglect.

Evgeniy Dorman, 41, surrendered to police in Lakewood, New Jersey, on Friday afternoon, according to New York ABC station WABC-TV. He was released pending a future court appearance.

A driver pulled over and snapped a photo of Dorman’s 10-month-old son on Sept. 22.

The driver, Cory Cannon, was on his way to work when he saw an infant crawling across Joe Parker Road just before 6 p.m. Saturday in Lakewood.

“I thought, ‘It’s a bag or a toy,'” Cannon told ABC News, recalling the incident.

It was only after he slowed down and got out of the car that he realized it was a child.

“I started to slow my truck down, so I could slow the traffic behind me, just in case it was something that could have done damage to the car, let alone it being a child,” he told WABC-TV. “When I saw the child move, that’s when I moved in to block off traffic and get myself out of the middle of the street. And then I snapped the pictures as I was getting out of the truck.”

Cannon took the child to a nearby house, where the child was reunited with his father.

Authorities said the baby crawled out of an open door while his father was not paying attention and managed to make it all the way to the street.

The child was not injured.

U.S. Navy(CHUUK, Micronesia) — Authorities say one person is unaccounted for after initially saying all 47 people onboard a flight to Micronesia that crash-landed in the ocean were safe.

No serious injuries were reported among those traveling on a Boeing 737 that landed about 150 yards short of a runway off the coast of Micronesia, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Air Niugini, the official state airline of Papua New Guinea, confirmed in a statement that the aircraft “landed short of the runway whilst landing at Chuuk Island of the Federated States of Micronesia this morning.”

Air Niugini said in a release Saturday that one man was unaccounted for, and it was working with local authorities to locate him. No further details were given.

The airline had said Friday that everyone onboard the flight was able to get off safely.

“Air Niugini can confirm that all onboard were able to safely evacuate the aircraft,” the statement continued. “The airline is making all efforts to ensure the safety and immediate needs of our passengers and crew. Further information will be provided as it becomes available.”

The jet contained 35 passengers and 12 crew members, according to Jimmy Emilio, the airport manager of Weno International Airport in Chuuk. An earlier FAA report said 46 people were aboard.

The flight from Pohnpei, Micronesia, to Chuuk usually takes about one hour.

Authorities are investigating the incident.

iStock/Thinkstock(BROOKHAVEN, Miss.) — Two police officers were killed in a shootout early Saturday morning in Mississippi, according to police.

Officers James White, 35, and Zack Moak, 31, were killed while responding to a call around 5 a.m. about shots fired in the small city of Brookhaven, south of the state capital of Jackson.

Upon the officers’ arrival at the scene, there was an exchange of gunfire between them and one or more suspects, Brookhaven police said in a news conference. White and Moak were both mortally wounded.

A suspect, identified as 25-year-old Marquis Flowers, was wounded and taken to a Jackson hospital, where he is being treated and is in police custody, police said. The police department would not comment on his injuries.

Brookhaven Police Chief Kenneth Collins expressed sympathy to the officers’ families.

“It’s just heartbreaking for us to get out here and do our day-to-day job and have to face all the things that’s against us,” Collins said at the news conference. “I just want y’all to know these are two awesome people that lost their lives in the line of duty, and they’re both heroes.”

Collins said the department has both body and dashboard cameras for officers, but it is unclear if they were in use during the shooting incident.
