A 25-year-old man was arrested Friday after allegedly leaving his 8-month-old daughter in a running car while he went into a 24 Hour Fitness gym in North Hollywood, police said.
Officers responding to a parking garage in the 5300 block of Lankershim Boulevard found that bystanders had removed the baby girl from the unlocked vehicle, according to Officer Matthew Ludwig with the Los Angeles Police Department.
The little girl had been in the vehicle for about 90 minutes, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The father, identified as Solomon Allen, was apparently in the gym at the time, Ludwig said.
Allen, who described himself as a personal trainer on his Twitter page, was arrested.
He was later booked on suspicion of child endangerment, according to Ludwig.
The baby was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.
