OWASSO, Okla. -- A police body camera captured the gut-wrenching moments when a woman is confronted with the fact her toddler was left in a hot van.

Luckily, the child is safe after having survived the ordeal.

The mother, Hannah Secondi, has been charged with child neglect and is being held on $50,000 bond.

The officer's body camera captured the confrontation with Secondi.

"Oh, God! Oh, God! I can't believe I did that. Oh, my God! My husband's going to kill me. Oh, my God!" Secondi is seen saying.

Another daughter can be heard in the background.

"Oh, my God!" Secondi says.

"Are you the mother?" the officer asks.

"She's dead!" Secondi says.

"No, she's not," the officer says.

Secondi was crying uncontrollably and placed her head into her hands while holding what appeared to be a receipt.

“It’s not like she just, you know, ‘Oh, I just ran inside really quick. I completely forgot. The day has been crazy,’ and she was alone,” said Bizzell's girlfriend, Chrysty Lansdowne said. “There was more people with her. There was no reason why the baby should have been left in the car.”

The toddler had been left alone inside the van in the parking lot of an Oklahoma Walmart on a hot, clear day. Other shoppers opened an unlocked door to find the 1-year-old covered in sweat.

“If the baby had been unconscious or asleep, we would have had no idea,” said Jedidiah Bizzell, who found the baby.

The girl is OK and her temperature is back under 100 degrees. She is now with her father.
