    DC - Parents leave toddlers in car and go to wine tasting

    Two parents left their two toddlers in their locked car in freezing temperatures while they went to a wine tasting, police have said.

    Jennie Chang, 46, and Christophe Lucas, 41, were arrested in Washington D.C. on Saturday afternoon after a passerby spotted the children inside their Volvo and called 911.

    By the time police reached the vehicle, their two-year-old daughter was 'crying hysterically' and her one-year-old brother had no socks or shoes on, according to the police report.

    Neither of the children were wearing hats or gloves, police said in the report.

    The parents left the kids for over an hour and the temperature outside was 28 degrees F. The dad tried to explain it away by saying he had left an iPhone with the kids so that they could monitor them.


    A judge has barred the parents from seeing their children (who are now with Family Services) until the next hearing.
