Crying toddler left in boiling hot car in Essex for more than an hour
As he was pulled from the car, a woman – believed to be the toddler’s mother – finally returned to the car and was ushered into the back of a St John’s Ambulance where police officers spent more than half an hour speaking to her.
Mum-of-two Cheryl said: “The firefighters did an amazing job getting him out, they worked so quickly.
“Then this woman just appeared from nowhere. No-one realised she was the boy’s mum to begin with as she didn’t seem to show any emotion over what was happening.
“She had another little boy with her, who was older and holding her hand. We just couldn’t understand why you would take one child out with you and leave one in the car for so long.
“No-one realised she was the boy’s mum to begin with as she didn’t seem to show any emotion over what was happening”
“Who knows where she had been or what she was doing. She didn’t have any bags with her, just a big handbag, so whether she’d popped to a shop or not, I don’t know.
“To leave your child for a minute is too long though, let alone an hour.”
Saffron Walden Fire Station posted a picture of the smashed window on social media and said: “Well a first for us! We have been called to animals locked in cars while the owners go shopping but never a child.
“We cannot stress enough how dangerous it is to leave any person, child or animal locked in a car in this heat.
“The child was rescued by our crew who smashed a window to gain entry.
“The incident has now been handed over to Essex Police for further investigation.
“First aid was given by St John Ambulance crew.”
