Police say a New York City couple left their 14-month-old son alone in a car while they shopped on Christmas Eve.     

A woman noticed the toddler sitting alone in the back seat of a locked car in the parking lot of a Staten Island shopping center on Saturday, reports The Staten Island Advance.     

The temperature outside the car was about 40 degrees at the time.     

Police arrived after the woman called a child abuse hotline.     

Emergency services officers unlocked the car and removed the boy. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.     

When the parents returned, police arrested them.
