A Daytona Beach woman has been arrested after she allegedly left her baby inside a hot car and went to see her doctor.

Jessica Zaccaro was charged with child neglect after she left her baby daughter in a hot car that was parked outside a medical building for at least 20 minutes.

A witness called Daytona Beach Police Department to report a baby crying in a hot car whose engine was not running and with the windows up. The witness said that he tried unsuccessfully to open the doors.

When police arrived, they broke into the car and got the baby out. The girl was not hurt but she was dehydrated and sweaty.

Zaccaro returned to the car to find the police. She told them that she didn't know the girl was there.
