ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Florida mother is facing a felony charge after leaving her 2-month-old baby in a hot minivan parked outside a doctor's office for about an hour.

Orange County Sheriff's Office officials said Wednesday that the woman is charged with child neglect. No other details, including the woman's name, were released.

The mother told investigators she was inside Timber Creek Pediatrics with her 9-year-old around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when she realized she'd left the little girl in the van.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies say the mother rushed the baby into the clinic, where doctors were able to stabilize her.

The girl was then taken to Nemour's Children's Hospital, where she is recovering.
