EAST GREENBUSH - After multiple 911 calls from an East Greenbush WalMart, police found a 7-month-old alone in a hot car.

They believe the baby was strapped in the car seat for between ten and 20 minutes.

They say the temperature inside the car was 98 degrees, but the baby was okay.

The infant's mother, 22-year-old Jamillah Clay, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say she told them she forgot the baby when she got out of the car.
