Mom leaves 2 kids in running car inside garage

- Pearland police say the incident that sent two unresponsive children to the hospital was an accident.

A 13-year old called Pearland Police dispatch at around 4:30 Thursday afternoon to an apartment complex at 2920 Oak Road.

Police and EMS found an 8-year-old and a 9-month-old breathing but unresponsive in a running car inside a garage.

Pearland Police Captain Onesimo Lopez says the children's mother told him she was trying to cool the car off. No criminal charges will be filed.

The police did not say how long the children were in the vehicle, but a neighbor says the mother told him it was about 5 minutes.

The children were overcome by carbon monoxide fumes.

They were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital.

Their conditions were not known Thursday night
