Schaffhausen police rescue 2 year old in car
Passers-by discovered a screaming two-year-old boy alone in a parked car shortly after midnight on Sunday in a town in Schaffhausen.
Because police couldn't find his mother, they called a mechanic to open the car door.
About 20 minutes later the child's 25-year-old mother finally came back to the car and admitted she'd been with friends in a nightclub.
The public prosecutor has now opened a case against her for neglecting her duty of care.
Police also charged a passer-by who was so angry at the woman he damaged her car.
