Dramatic Video shows moment Georgia Police officers smash a car window to free a young child from 90-degree heat

Video captured the moment police officers in Atlanta, Georgia, rescued a 1-year-old little girl who was accidentally locked in a car with sweltering temperatures reaching almost 90 degrees.

The footage obtained by the New York Post shows a frantic grandmother telling officers: “I put my keys on the seat and it automatically locked.”

Two officers who rushed to the scene after her emergency call decided to smash the car window to rescue the little girl as the concerned woman watches on.

A car sitting outside in 90-degree conditions can reach in excess of 100 degrees in less than 30 minutes  – making it dangerous to leave children or pets inside even for a short period of time.

Luckily, the child was freed before she suffered any serious harm.
