Police in New York state say the man forgot to drop off his son at day care and left the child strapped in the back seat when he parked outside his office on Thursday morning.

Officials say the man received a call from his wife in the afternoon inquiring about their child. He called for an ambulance, and the boy was checked out at a hospital and released. Police say the baby didn't suffer any injuries, despite temperatures that didn't top -9.5C.

Police said they haven't determined yet if the father would be charged.
