A dramatic video from a police body camera showed an officer rescue a baby from a hot car in Atlanta, Georgia, according to ABC7.
A frantic mother called for help after she accidentally locked her 7-month-old child in her parked car on July 6. It was 90 degrees outside.
In the video, the baby was crying, clearly in distress.
“I called right away. I just didn’t know what to do and I didn’t have anything to break the window,” the woman said.
This child ended up being OK, but every year an average of 37 children die nationwide from being left in a hot car.
Doctors and first responders are reminding people this summer to be vigilant, noting that July is the peak month for hot vehicle deaths.
