A 21-month-old boy was found locked in a car at a Calgary, Alberta casino while his 50-year-old sperm donor was off gambling.
The temperature at the time was a bitter -8C which to us non-conformist Yanks is roughly 18F. The boy was in very light clothes and a blanket blocked the car’s windows so no one could see in. Luckily a passer by heard the child screaming. The child was so upset that he vomited on himself.
The sperm donor was charged with child abandonment.
It seems that he took an even bigger gamble with his son’s well being and lost.
Thanks to Krisitin for the tip.
