EATONTOWN - A mother from Tinton Falls left her 8-month-old son in a parked car for nearly 40 minutes during Thursday afternoon's brutal heat.

The mother, Elizabeth Russo, 40, had taken her older daughter inside Aerials Gymnastics in Eatontown and says she forgot the baby was still in the car outside.


Russo says she was distracted after running late with errands as she brought her daughter to gymnastics and is badly shaken by what happened.

The baby was not injured and Russo is not facing charges.
