Cambs firefighters rescue trapped one-year-old after car keys are locked in boot
FIREFIGHTERS reunited a baby with its mother yesterday - after the one-year-old was left trapped in a car when the keys were mistakenly shut in the boot.
The woman had been driving with the baby and a dog in her car but stopped at a Cambridgeshire service station.
As she opened the boot the dog ran away and - in the commotion - she inadvertently dropped her car keys inside. On closing the boot, she found she was locked out with the baby trapped in the car.
Firefighters used tools from the fire engine to assist the AA in safely removing glass from the light to gain access to the boot and rescue the baby.
Gavin Bufton, crew manager at Stanground Fire Station said: “The mother was obviously very upset when we arrived, but the baby was fine. Apparently it stopped crying when we showed up.
