Coromato added that along with the nine-month-old baby, a one-year-old, two-year-old and five-year-old were also removed from the home. At the end of the video, a woman can be heard saying "that's my baby" in a panicked voice.

She told police she immediately returned to the area where she'd left from and found the 9-month-old.

The baby was evaluated at a local hospital, and Child Protective Services was notified. During her police interview, the Utica mom told the investigators that she had to pay a visit to someone on Bleecker Street and that before leaving the son in the auto, she made sure that all doors and windows are closed.

She is scheduled to face court on March 23, according to the news station.
