Baby Okay After Grandmother ‘Forgets’ Leaving Child Outside Local Gas Station

Springfield, Mass. (WGGB) –  A baby is safe after being left in a parking lot by his grandmother Tuesday evening.

Springfield Police Captain Collins told us it happened at the Pride Gas Station on West Street around 7:30 p.m.

Collins says the grandmother had the baby outside the store in a stroller and left it.

While police were still on scene, the baby’s grandfather showed up and told police the grandmother had forgotten about the child.

Collins says the baby was only left for a short time and is now back with his mother.
