Black Friday: TV taken, tot left

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Police say a Massachusetts man left his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son in a car while he went shopping for Black Friday bargains, then went home with his new 51-inch flat screen television and left the toddler behind.

Police, alerted by store security, found the boy asleep in the vehicle in a Kmart parking lot at about 1:30 a.m. Friday.

They forced their way into the car and took the boy to the hospital as a precaution.

Meanwhile, they tracked the man to his Springfield home.

Eager holiday shoppers forego an after Thanksgiving nap to wait in line for door busting bargains.

Hordes of shoppers hit the stores on Black Friday

He told police he lost the boy while shopping, panicked and called someone else for a ride. The boy’s mother was working.

The 34-year-old man was not arrested and not immediately charged, but police say they expect to charge him with reckless endangerment to a child.

Though Black Friday officially kicked off the holiday shopping season this morning, many shoppers were already bargain-hunting before Thanksgiving dinner had a chance to settle. CNBC’s Courtney Reagan reports from the Black Friday frenzy in Dayton, Ohio.
