A Chinese man is being held by police in Modena, in northern Italy, after leaving his one-month-old in a car. The boy was found with his mouth taped.


He also had a temperature of 38 and was taken to hospital for tests, according to a report in Articolo Tre.

The Fiat Stilo was parked, under the sweltering sun, next to a shopping centre. Witnesses reported seeing his dad leaving the car, but assumed it was to do his shopping, the newspaper said. 

Police said the man will face charges of child neglect.
