A Kentucky mother has been charged with wanton endangerment after leaving her two young children screaming in a hot car while she was getting a Brazilian wax job done.
According to WLKY, 22-year-old Courtney Kippes left her 2 and 3-year-old boys in a car with temps reaching a heat index of 87 degrees while she went to a Louisville spa. Business owners heard the screaming kids and called police.
When police finally found their mother, she told them she was okay with leaving the kids.
Police also found a pill bottle inside the vehicle which had a crushed pill and "snorting straw." Police say the kids were "hot to the touch" and sweating.
