Kid Left In Car As Mother Works

A Far Rockaway woman was arrested in Nassau County July 17 after she allegedly left her young child alone in her parked car while she worked the night shift at a hospital.

Sharon Tatum-Powell, 41, left her son in her car outside North Shore University Hospital at about 11 p.m. on Friday, July 14, according to a report in Newsday. A security guard discovered the boy sleeping in the car about eight hours later.

Tatum-Powell, of 1472 Beach Channel Drive, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, according to Nassau County law enforcement sources. She is due back in First District Court in Hempstead on July 28.

Tatum-Powell could not be reached for comment.
