A New Hampshire man is under arrest after leaving a child in a car with no heat for nearly half an hour in the freezing cold temperatures.

On Saturday March 11 around 3:00 p.m. officers from the Hooksett Police Department responded to reports of an unattended vehicle at the parking lot of a Market Basket in Hookset.

When the officer arrived, he found a 5-year-old child alone inside of the car. The car was not running, and the child was shaking due to the frigid cold temperatures. The officer immediately secured the child in a warm environment and tried to locate the person responsible.

Eventually, the officer located 47-year-old Silviu Visuian. After speaking with Visuian, the police discovered the child had been left unattended in a car without heat for nearly half an hour.

At this time, temperatures in Hookset were 16 degrees, with a wind child of -1.

Visuian was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child. The child was released to the family and Visuian was released on $2,000 bail.
