A man and woman have been banned from all Pennsylvania casinos for leaving five children in a vehicle while gambling, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Wednesday.

Both are accused of leaving five children - ages 2, 4, 5, 11 and 13 - unattended in a vehicle in the Presque Isle Downs & Casino parking lot for 35 minutes while they gambled on slot machines.

Adults are not allowed to leave minors unattended in the parking lot or garage, a hotel or other venues at a casino because "it creates a potentially unsafe and dangerous environment for the children," according the the Gaming Control Board.

From the start of 2022 through April 2023, there have been 359 incidents of adults leaving involving 576children unattended to gamble at Pennsylvania casinos.
