Baby rescued from hot car

Two police officers in Madrid rescued a baby from a hot car in Madrid city centre at the weekend. While temperatures in the city reached 37 degrees, officers on patrol in the city centre were alerted by a pedestrian that there was a baby alone in a hot car. The parents could not be found nearby so the officers made the decision to broke the window and remove the child, who is just a few months old.
Paramedics were called to the scene and were able to verify that the baby was in good health. A spokesperson for Madrid’s Emergency Services remarked that under no circumstances should any child be left in a hot car since the temperatures inside can easily reach over 40 degrees in summer, putting the child’s health at risk.
