HOUSTON (KITCH) — A Houston mother has been charged after her 13-year-old son was found in the trunk of a car while at a COVID testing site, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s office.

According to NBC affiliate KPRC, Sarah Pym has been accused of endangering a child. The Cy-Fair ISD Police Department said an arrest warrant has been issued for her.

Reports indicate that Beam pulled up to the Cy-Fair ISD COVID test site in northwest Harris County when a witness reported hearing something in the trunk. The witness said that when Bem opened the trunk, the boy was found lying inside.

Pim allegedly told authorities that her son had tested positive for COVID-19 and that they were taking him to the site for additional testing. In order to protect herself from being exposed, Bem decided to put the boy in the trunk of the car.

Cy-Fair ISD officials said Shuaa recently taught at Cypress Falls High School and has been employed in the area since 2011. She is now placed on administrative leave.

Cy-Fair ISD issued a statement regarding the incident:

“The CFPD was alerted to the presence of a child in the trunk of a car at the COVID-19 testing site earlier this week. Law enforcement conducted a full investigation, which resulted in an arrest warrant being issued. Fortunately, the child was unharmed.”
