Mom Arrested After Allegedly leaving 4 kids in Car Amid California heat

San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies say they've arrested a mother that allegedly left her four toddlers in a parked car during a heat wave that saw triple-digit temperatures.

Authorities say sheriff's deputies responded to a call in inland Victorville around midday on Wednesday, and discovered three girls and a boy trapped in a hot car. Temperatures in the area topped 100 degrees on Wednesday. 

The kids, ranging in age between 1 and 3, were inside the car for about 30 minutes with the engine off and windows rolled up investigators believe. The 28-year-old mother was arrested on suspicion of child cruelty. 

Paramedics examined the children and then released them to the custody of a family member.
