k-bigpicYup that actually happened.

Victor Ruiz a Texas father left his two young daughters in the car while he ran in the grocery store to grab a couple items. When he finished shopping he came outside, to find that the car had been towed.

The tow truck driver went two blocks before realizing their were young children in the car, once he did he pulled over and called the police.

Ruiz was arrested for two counts of abandoning a child, though that charge may be tough to prove since technically he didn’t abandon them, they were taken. [Gawker]
