Parx officials in Harrisburg to discuss issue of kids left in cars

    Parx Casino officials are in Harrisburg today to meet with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board about a persistent issue: kids left in cars while their caretakers gamble.

    The board will review the plan Parx drafted about a year ago, as KYW reports, which aimed to reduce the number of those incidents. Another incident occurred just last month, and the board wants to look at if and how Parx can do more to prevent such situations.
