EDMONTON - A 33-year-old Edmonton man has been charged after his two-year-old son was discovered in the back seat of a vehicle in sweltering temperatures.

Police say the child was in obvious distress when a beat cop on a bicycle responded to a complaint that had been phoned in by a passerby on Wednesday.

The car was in an underground parkade at a downtown Edmonton office tower.

Attempts to find the owner failed, so the constable broke a window to get in.

Police say the child appeared lethargic and was drenched in sweat, but was otherwise unharmed.

The father, who told police he had been running errands and lost track of time, has been charged with abandoning a child.
