A mother on Long Island is facing child endangerment charges, accused of leaving her kids in the car while she went shopping.

Nassau County police arrested 34-year-old Virginie Cohen after her 3-year-old daughter and 11-month-old son were found in a locked car outside a store on Northern Boulevard in Manhasset.

An officer broke into the car because the infant was crying.

Cohen admitted she'd been gone for a half hour returning items at a beauty supply store.
