Heat Wave Rescue

4 Jul

I was in the parking lot last week and a man frantically asked me to stop. He wanted to use my cell phone because his toddler was locked in the car. The temperature was more than 90 outside, and he explained that he was using his mother’s car. He inadvertently locked his cell phone and keys inside. So, I gave him my cell phone. He called his wife. Of course, she did not pick up because she thought it was a robo call. We both decided it was time to call 9-1-1. He did, and the police and fire rescue came within 5 minutes.

Then with long instruments, the rescuers worked on both sides of the car. The toddler was not crying yet, but we were all upset because of the heat. Thank goodness there was a happy ending for this family.

It’s been so hot lately and this can happen to anyone. So, please be safe!

It’s interesting that some people thought I should not have gotten involved. They thought that it could have been a scam.

What would you have done?

    i would have done exactly what you did! i guess people are not sure who to help so they would say no. i was at the airport and realized my phone died and remember how a porter allowed me to use his phone–i was so grateful! you did the right thing

    You were right to get involved. I would do the same, even at the risk of that being a scam.
