ROLLA, Mo. (AP) — Rolla police say a 10-month-old baby has been rescued from a burning vehicle.
KOLR-TV reports that fire started Thursday when the baby was left unattended while his mother went inside a business and waited for a pizza. Rolla Lt. Jason Smith says the mother discovered the vehicle was on fire when she returned.
Emergency crews started CPR on the baby, who was not breathing, then rushed him to a hospital in Rolla. He was later airlifted to a hospital in St. Louis.
Police Lt. Rick Williams says authorities are looking into the cause of the fire as well as possibility of child neglect or endangerment charges.
