The girl was taken away by child custody.
Responding to a 911 call about the unsupervised child, police found the girl–crying and confused–alone outside the all-nude Vegas Cabaret in Lauderhill, a Broward County city, around 2 AM.
The child had apparently been sleeping inside a Toyota Corolla that was not running and had a window cracked open for ventilation. In the rear of the car, cops reported, were toys and a car seat.
Around 2:30 AM, Manouchika Daniels, 23, approached officers and identified herself as the child’s mother. According to police, Daniels had left her daughter unattended in the parking lot for about three hours.
