DELTONA -- A South Florida man was arrested Sunday afternoon when it was discovered that he had left a 4-year-old boy alone in his Toyota Camry rental for at least 13 minutes while he went into a grocery store.

"The boy was unharmed, but was in potential danger in a warm car with the windows rolled up, the car off and the doors locked," Volusia County Sheriff's spokesman Brandon Haught said of the incident in the Publix Shopping Center, 2783 Elkcam Blvd.

Shelton Cover, 32, of Hollywood, was charged with leaving a child younger than 6 unattended, a felony.

The boy was unharmed and turned over to his mother who was called to the scene by deputies. A concerned citizen saw Cover get out of his vehicle in the parking lot of the Publix at about 2:39 p.m. Cover went into the store, leaving the boy in the back seat alone Haught said.

"Deputies and the Deltona Fire Department were called to the scene where they saw the boy sweating and nervous but alert," the Sheriff's spokesman said. "It was 86 degrees with a 90 degree heat index at the time. Firefighters pried open a door, got the boy out and had him checked out by EVAC Ambulance paramedics."
