Gambler endangers life of infant and toddler

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Casino Watch Focus has reported acts of parents leaving children in the car while they gamble, and sadly, this may not be the last time either.  The Las Vegas Sun is reporting that a father has left his infant and toddler in the car while he gambled:

Police found a 3-month-old and a 2-year-old, both boys, belted into their car seats inside an SUV parked near a business. The windows were down, the keys were in the ignition and the radio was on, police said.

Officers found the children’s father, 35-year-old Willie Culvert of Las Vegas, in a nearby bar where he had been gambling for about two hours, police said.  Culvert was arrested for two counts of child endangerment and will be booked into the Clark County Detention Center, police said.  Leaving children unattended in vehicles can have tragic, often fatal results, police said.
