A dramatic video has emerged from China of bystanders and police breaking into a car to rescue a child who was locked inside on a hot summer afternoon.
In the footage, captured on a security camera in Zhejiang Province this month, bystanders can be seen noticing the girl who had been inside the car for an hour before summoning police who smash the window.
According to local reports, bystanders tried to find the driver first but were unsuccessful. The parents returned to the car just as the child was removed by officers.
Mother sparks outrage in China
Earlier this month, also in Zhejiang Province, a mother sparked outrage after apparently choosing her BMW over her child.
When her 3-year-old son became trapped inside the luxury car, the mother reportedly refused to smash the car's window because she didn't want to damage the car.
The heat inside the car was so intense that the little boy's health began to deteriorate.
Large crowds gathered around the car as the little boy helplessly cried inside the vehicle. The boy was even clawing at the car window in an attempt to get out as the mother stood next to the car and watched, according to CCTV.
Eventually, a group of firefighters appeared at the scene and urged the woman to let them break the window in order to save the boy. However, the mother simply refused and insisted on waiting for a locksmith.
Thankfully, the firefighters ignored the mother's request and smashed the window and the child was rescued.
