STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Rowayton woman left her 7-month-old sleeping baby girl in her locked Mercedes Benz E350 car while she shopped at the Stamford Town Center on Thursday evening, police said.

Mall security called police at 8 p.m. after a passerby noticed the infant alone in the vehicle and no one around, Lt. Diedrich Hohn said.

Security was able to pry open a car door and were holding the sweaty and crying baby when officers arrived, police said. The woman returned to her car at 8:20 p.m. to see security and police with her baby, police said.

She told police she had been inside for only 10 minutes and hadn't wanted to wake the baby. She was told that mall security and police had been on the scene for about 20 minutes without any sign of her, police said.

The child was taken to Stamford Hospital for observation and released to her mother.

Denise Corcoran, 42, of 198 Rowayton Ave., Norwalk, was issued a misdemeanor summons on a charge of leaving a child unattended in a vehicle. The state Department of Children and Families was notified, Hohn said.

this dumbfounds me. it really does. i can't get my head around how ANYONE could ever in a million years leave their tiny, defenseless baby in a locked car!!!!!!!! i'm not sure i would be able to look at this person the same way ever again, if i had to work with her, etc.. i'm sorry to be so blunt, but there is NO excusing this. how how how how how and why would you leave your baby unattended?! just to run into the mall to buy some material good. it sickens me.

It takes more than ten minutes to get from the parking lot, up the escalators (plural), into the mall, and back. This just goes to show that incredible stupidity, child neglect, and laziness crosses all economic lines.

Is she a Norwalk police officer>?

"She told police she had been inside for only 10 minutes" You have to love the fact that she thought that unattended in a car for ONLY 10 MINUTES is ok.

Was there a Lilly Pulitzer sale going on? If so, there should be no repercussion.

Maybe she was stealing those bras from Victoria Secret.
