It was a scorchingly hot day as a frantic crowd surrounded a vehicle, terrified that the little one stuck in the car might not make it out alive. A mother wailed as law enforcement attempted to save the infant's precious life.
A horrified mother in Euclid, Ohio, contacted the police after she left her key fob in the car, which then locked automatically as a result. A body camera clip released by Euclid Police Department recorded the incident.
It showed the police arriving on the scene as a concerned crowd awaited their assistance. The officers wasted no time alighting from their car to rescue the vulnerable 2-month-old.

Quickly, one of the officers pulled a wedge from the police car's trunk. Informing the crowd about how dire the situation was, the policeman explained.
"It can get over 100 degrees in that car in a very short amount of time."
The police officer attempted to pull open one of the doors using this wedge, but to no avail as a woman, assumably the mother, wept. Eventually, the police realized there was no more time, smashing one of the windows with a sledgehammer.

The profusely sweating baby was taken out of the car as the officers and crowd all attempted to cool the infant off. They fanned the baby with their hands and placed an iced water bottle on her head and back in case of dehydration.

AAA’s Robert Sinclair has advised that individuals take care to double-check that they have their key fobs on them at all times. He expressed that it's becoming an increasing issue with more people getting locked out of their vehicles.
The National Safety Council reported 14 deaths of children due to overheating in vehicles so far in 2021 alone. Furthermore, 25 have passed between 2019 and 2020.
Another defenseless baby was found stuck in a car in Camden County, New Jersey, at a CVS pharmacy parking lot. Officer Belinda Villegas-Ramos, who was in the area working on a private assignment, was informed by a woman.
She attempted to break the driver's window using her flashlight, but it did not work. Eventually, officer Joseph McGrath arrived as backup, smashing the window and saving the little one from the boiling vehicle.
The mother's response, however, was defensive, stating that she had only been going into the CVS pharmacy for a short while. The mom was angry over the smashed window.

AN UNEXPECTED RESCUE
Not all heroes are police officers. Sometimes ordinary people come to show their beautiful hearts and bravery, such as a Chicago-based woman who saved a newborn placed inside a dresser in an alley.
She managed to discover the baby right before trash pickup. This lady put her hands in the dresser and felt his little foot moving, she said, holding him close until the paramedics arrived.
He was reportedly taken to a nearby children’s hospital, but his current state is not known. It is clear that although some do not care for the vulnerable, many in society will do their best to ensure the safety of those who can't defend themselves.
