2-year-old Casa Grande girl critical after being left unattended in car for over 2 hours


CASA GRANDE,Ariz. — A 2-year-old Casa Grande girl is hospitalized in critical condition after being left unattended in a car for over two hours.

Police said the girl was left unattended Sunday after her parents and their seven children returned home from church Sunday in two different vehicles.

The girl, Hadley Sellaro, was breathing but unresponsive in a car in the driveway when found by the family, who tried to lower her body temperature with cool water while calling 911.

Police say the girl remained in critical condition Tuesday.

According to police, the family has cooperated with investigators and no arrests have been made.

However, police said the Pinal County Attorney's Office will be asked to consider whether to charge the parents, 54-year-old Stephen Sellaro and 41-year-old Courtney Sellaro, with child abuse.
