According to the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger, a 44-year-old New Jersey woman was arrested last month and charged with child endangerment after police say her 5-year-old daughter was burned in a tanning salon.

Police alleged the woman took her daughter into a stand-up tanning booth, according to the Star-Ledger report. New Jersey law prohibits children under 14 from tanning, according to the Star-Ledger.
