Lethbridge police have laid charges against two women after their two children were found alone in a vehicle left outside in the cold for over an hour.
According to investigators, a three year old girl and a four year old boy were inside a locked vehicle near 5th street south at around 11:30pm on Thursday.
The temperature was -18 and the vehicle was not running.
Surveillance footage shows the pair had been inside the bar for over a hour.
The women cannot be named in order to protect the identity of the children.
They are charged with one count each of failing to provide the necessaries of life.
