ORLANDO, Fla. — A 2-month-old baby is recovering after being left for about an hour inside a hot minivan parked outside a doctor’s office in Florida.

Orlando broadcast stations report the baby’s mother told investigators she was inside Timber Creek Pediatrics with her 9-year-old around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when she realized she’d left the little girl in the van.

Orange County Sheriff’s deputies say the mother rushed the baby into the clinic, where doctors were able to stabilize her. She was then taken to Nemour’s Children’s Hospital.

Authorities haven’t released the woman’s name. There was no immediate word on whether she’ll face charges.
