DAVENPORT (AP) — A 27-year-old Bettendorf woman has been accused of leaving her infant in her car while working out at a Davenport fitness center.

The Quad-City Times says Amanda Broihier faces a misdemeanor count of child endangerment.

Court documents say the child was seen in a car seat alone in the vehicle twice last week while the woman was inside the fitness center for an exercise class.

The documents say Broihier had been taking the infant inside during classes but was told not to because of safety reasons.

A public phone listing for Broihier couldn’t be found. Online court records don’t list the name of her attorney.
