Police: Parents Leave 4 Young Children In Car In Triple Digit Heat

DALLAS (AP) - Four children are hospitalized after Dallas police found them left alone in a sport utility vehicle in 101-degree heat.

Their parents were arrested and charged with child endangerment. Twenty-four-year-old Nicholas Madison and 22-year-old Natasha Hamalian are booked into the Dallas County jail without bond.

Online jail records show neither have an attorney. Dallas police Sr. Cpl. Sherri Jeffrey says the four children range in age from 2 months to 5 years and were listed in stable condition at Children's Medical Center of Dallas.

The incident happened outside a plasma donation station in southeastern Dallas just after noon on Sunday when passers-by found and rescued the children.

The National Weather Service has a heat advisory in place for the Dallas-Fort Worth area through Tuesday morning.
