In the world where infertility is taking over the order of the day, this couple abandoned their 5-month-old newborn baby in their fully locked car and left into a shopping mall.
The five-month-old baby was left locked inside a hot car outside a supermarket while its parents shopped inside.
Shoppers were outraged by the sight in the Sainsbury’s car park in Gloucester on Sunday afternoon and called the police to raise the alarm.
The window of the car had been left slightly open but the baby, which had a blanket over it, was heard to be in tears at about 5 pm in outside temperatures of 73F (23C).
A passer-by saw that the baby was distressed and called the police, before staying near the vehicle until the parents returned.
Facebook users told of their horror after the incident on the Spotted: Quedgeley, Kingsway and Hardwicke page, with one saying they were ‘disgusted’
