A Hoffman Estates woman is charged with misdemeanor child endangerment after police say she left her toddler in a car while she went shopping.

Elgin officials say 43-year-old Aixin Li left her 2-year-old in a van for nearly an hour Thursday afternoon when temperatures were in the mid-20's.

The boy was taken into protective custody until his father picked him up.
