“She’s soaking wet,” one of the sheriffs said while comforting the crying child.

Authorities estimated that it was about 80 degrees in the van. It’s unclear how long the child was in the car.

The sheriff confronted the child’s mother when she arrived at her car with a full shopping cart and a second child in tow.

“Is this your kid? You left her in the car!” the sheriff said.

“Sorry, sorry,” the mother can be heard saying.

“No sorry, she could have died!” the sheriff fired back.

Chaeyoung Lim-Kim was arrested and charged with child endangerment.

The child was taken to Hackensack Medical Center and turned over to her father.
