Jason Short, a police officer, was quick to take action after learning about a baby trapped inside a car on a hot day from a 911 call. He broke the window to rescue the baby, only to find out that it was just a doll.


Short rushed over to the car at a Walmart parking lot in Keene, New Hampshire, to respond to the 911 call. Upon arrival, he saw little feet stick out under the blanket draped over a car seat. His instinct was to break a window to rescue the baby since it was 90 degrees that day.

Using his baton, Short busted the window open and successfully pulled the baby out of the hot vehicle. Afterward, he called an ambulance after checking that the baby appeared to be dead.

With the baby looking pale, Short started performing CPR.

As onlookers started to gather, Short noticed something didn’t feel right. Soon enough, he noticed that what he was holding wasn’t an actual baby but a very realistic-looking doll.

The car and doll owner, Carolynne Seiffert was getting a haircut at SuperCuts at the time when her car’s window was getting smashed.

When she learned about what happened, Seiffert was angered. Short seemed ashamed by what happened, but he clarified that he was standing by what he did.


Speaking with WCVB, he said, “I would never assume that it’s a doll. I would always assume that it’s a child. I would never do anything different.”

Seiffert said she bought the “reborn” doll to cope with the loss of her son.

The doll named Ainsley was purchased for $2,300 and weighs 10 pounds and seven ounces.

Seiffert revealed that she owns 40 dolls just like Ainsley.

She said, "I've been laughed at and embarrassed by all the fuss. You can't know how people choose to deal with their losses in life.”

After the incident, Seiffert put up a bumper sticker on her car explaining the doll is not a real baby to stop the situation from happening again. The police department also offered to pay for the car damages.
