A group of shoppers prevented what could have been another tragic occurrence of a child dying in a hot car.
According to KHOU, a group of shoppers in Katy, Texas, saw two kids sitting alone in a parked car Monday.
“The kids were in there crying,” said Gabriel Del Valle, who works at a shop near the scene and took video of the incident. “I mean you would understand. It’s real hot.”
The group tried to free the children by smashing the windows with a hammer, which took several minutes. The children were unharmed.
The mother claimed she temporarily left the kids in the car while she got a haircut and said she made a terrible mistake.
No one called the police.
