The Dom Post reports:

Appalled Child, and Family workers have taken a one-year-old baby into care after his father him unattended in a car while he watched strippers in a nearby Wellington bar. …

A passer-by noticed the child about 3am yesterday and contacted police, arrived within seven minutes and broke a window of the locked car to rescue the baby. They took him to Wellington police station but he was later taken to Wellington Hospital by ambulance staff concerned about his breathing.

Most parents freak out if they lose sight of their baby for even half a minute. Leaving a baby in a car is horrendous. But doing so at 3 am, so you can go to a strip club, is close to the ultimate in selfishness.
