A 14-month-old girl left inside a 115-degree car Thursday while her father filled a prescription at Costco was released to her mother Thursday evening, police said.

The girl, who wasn’t harmed in the incident, was taken to the Burbank Police Department after being rescued from the car, Sgt. Robert Quesada said.

The girl’s father, Edik Magardomyan, 38, of Glendale was arrested Thursday on suspicion of child endangerment when he exited the store. He was released that day on $100,000 bail. The Los Angeles County District Attorney had not filed charges against Magardomyan as yet, officials said Friday.
