A California woman was arrested after she allegedly two babies — a 9-month-old baby and a 1-year-old in a hot car, while they were looking for a Walmart in Ontario.

Crystal Gonzales, 34, was Sunday arrested after a security guard saw a group of people gathered around a white SUV in the shop in the parking lot.

The two children, who are not known, were reportedly “in crisis due to the high temperatures,” Ontario police Detective Melissa Ramirez told the San Bernardino Sun. The temperatures Sunday reached nearly 100 degrees.
