Check out a few reactions to this rescue video right here:
“One time My Key FOB/Remote did not work as the battery inside the remote died. My car doors automatically locked just after parking my car. Fortunately, there was no child/children or dog/cat inside my car during a hot summer day,” expressed an individual. Another added, “This was dumb. If your kid ever gets locked in a car you call the fire department and they get in your car. No need to break glass.”
“I’m confused. Why not go through a door window and just open it right after?” posted a third. A fourth commented, “Break the side window. It actually shatters. Front window has a film that prevents shattering.” “It don’t matter how they got the baby out. What matters is they did,” added a fifth.
