A 3-year-old was rescued by police after people in a local market’s parking lot noticed him inside a hot car. His parents didn’t show up immediately.


While Christmas in North America comes with snow and low temperatures in most cities, in the other extreme of the continent Christmas brings summer around. So, as the temperature rises, authorities have made sure to remind parents that leaving their kids inside of hot cars can be dangerous.

However, the parents of a 3-year-old boy ignored the advice and went Christmas shopping while leaving their son behind inside of the car, tied to his car seat and under the scorching Argentinian sun.

It happened on the parking lot of the Coto Supermarket in Ciudadela 6, Buenos Aires. While walking to their cars, several people noticed there was a toddler in the backseat of a silver Chevrolet Meriva that was being hit straight by the sun rays.


They waited around a few minutes to see if the kid’s parents arrived, but as they noticed the baby growing increasingly fussy on the particular hot day, they decided to call authorities.


Two police officers arrived at the place and, without wasting any time, broke the window of the passenger side to open the back door without scaring the child. A video recorded by one of the angered witnesses shows the boy being rescued by a female police officer, who talked to the boy to soothe him down.


The boy allegedly had difficult to breathe by the time he was rescued and was dehydrated.

Sometime after the rescue, the child’s father finally appeared and went to the Carrillo Hospital alongside the boy and the two officers to check his son’s condition. Fortunately, the boy was only dehydrated.


Witnesses and people on social media called out the parents for not taking proper care of their child and asked authorities to make the necessary measures so they can learn their lesson.


On a similar situation of parents neglecting their kids, a woman was arrested and charged with child neglect after she left her 3-year-old locked in a hot car overnight.

The toddler was left in the vehicle when her mother Casey Dyan Keller, 33, went to a liquor store with three children the day before. However, when they returned home, Keller forgot to take her daughter out of the car.

After realizing her daughter was missing, the woman reportedly called 911 and reported the missing car with a child inside.

It was Seminole County Deputy Bill Dunn who saved the girl. By the time he found her, she was slipping in and out of consciousness after spending 12 hours in the car.


The girl spent three days in the hospital and was later reunited with her savior.
