A toddler locked in a hot car. Omaha police say it’s a potentially deadly circumstance, and one reason a local mother was ticketed Tuesday on suspicion of child abuse by neglect. A gust of wind apparently slammed closed a sport utility vehicle’s doors, locking a nearly 2-year-old girl inside. In vain, family members worked to free her before calling 911; the girl’s mother told the police officers when they arrived that the girl was trapped for about 15 minutes.
