2-Year-Old Left in LI Parking Lot

Authorities say a Long Island man who had taken prescription medication left his 2-year-old daughter in the parking lot of a shopping center for more than an hour.
 
An off-duty New York City police officer saw the child alone around 10:20 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Carmans Plaza on Carmans Road in Massapequa.

  Police said the child's 37-year-old father came back to the scene and couldn't remember where he had left the girl. Authorities said he was observed in a delusional state, and had an accelerated heart rate. He was admitted to the hospital, and is facing a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
 
The girl was evaluated at the hospital and released to her mother.
