3-year-old critical after being left in car for 3 hours; Mom charged

Police say a 3-year-old child is in critical condition after being left in a car for three hours Tuesday in Fulton County. 

Someone saw the child in the car, located in the 6800 block of Smokeridge Drive, and called 911, according to a spokesperson with the Fulton County Police Department.

The police spokesperson says paramedics rushed the child in critical condition to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding with what they believe are heat-related issues due to the windows being rolled up.

The child's mother -- identified as 25-year-old Lillian Stone -- was originally being questioned, and has now been charged with first-degree cruelty to children.
