A city school librarian left his one-year-old daughter alone in a parked car in the Bronx for five and a half hours Thursday while walking to work, police said.
Another school worker spotted the child in the car and desperately smashed the rear passenger window to get him out, police said.
The baby’s father, Michael Dodes, 41, had left the child in his Subaru Forester while she was at the Walter J. Damrosch school on Jennings Street in Morrisania, where she was recently hired as a librarian, authorities said .
She was taken to the BronxCare Health System with non-life threatening injuries.
Dodes was arrested around 2.45pm and charged with endangering the well-being of a child, police officers said.
His LinkedIn account shows that he was most recently the library coordinator for the Queens Office of School Library Service.
Before that, he worked as a library coordinator for North Brooklyn.
The city’s Education Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post on Friday.
