HALFMOON -- A state trooper used a rescue tool to break a car's window and rescue an infant left alone in the vehicle at the Halfmoon Walmart, state police said Thursday.

Paramedics determined the infant was unharmed. Troopers soon located the mother inside the store and charged her with child endangerment, troopers said.

Latoya Fordham, 34, of Albany, faces one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. She is to appear in Halfmoon Town Court later.

The incident happened Saturday at the Route 9 store, state police said. A passerby spotted the infant in the vehicle and called police.
