Infant Left Alone in Car With Note, Photo Goes Viral

by at . Comments

A photograph of an infant left alone in a car in New Zealand is causing quite an uproar around the world. Resting on the sleeping baby is a note reading:

"My mums is doing the shopping, call her if I need anything."

There is a phone number written at the end.

A couple who saw the baby told the New Zealand Herald, "We waited there for a little bit, wondering if the mum was just going to be two seconds and come back."

"My wife said, 'I'm not going in without someone being with the baby.'"

Someone did eventually call the mom, and the picture was uploaded to Facebook, where it quickly went viral due to outrage over her negligence.

It is, in fact, illegal in New Zealand for a parent / guardian to leave a child under 14 years of age alone for an unreasonable time or in unreasonable conditions.

However, police are not looking for the mother, as no one has filed a formal complaint. The Porirua Police said, "If they do call us, we'll be acting on it."
