Woman Charged for Letting Toddler Pump Gas

LANCASTER, Pa. - Police say a Pennsylvania woman has been charged with a crime because she let her 3-year-old son handle a gasoline pump, and the child sprayed fuel on himself.

Manheim Township Police said Tuesday they filed a charge of endangering the welfare of a child against 46-year-old Theresa Moran Camera, of Lancaster.

Police say they were called to a supermarket on Jan. 19 and determined the boy removed the nozzle from the vehicle's gas tank without releasing the handle.
