14-month-old Brandon Emery was recently rescued by firefighters from a locked car while he watched from the driver’s seat laughing after accidentally locking himself inside. His mother, Kirsty Green said she had been grocery shopping with him and had just unloaded the groceries into the boot of her car when he managed to trap himself.
‘He’d been in the little child seat of the shopping trolley but it didn’t have any straps, so he kept trying to stand up while I was shopping. I decided to put him in the back of the car while I was unloading the shopping so he didn’t keep trying to stand up in the trolley,’ she said.
Kristy said she had absent-mindedly placed her car keys in the boot while she was loading the car, and realised she had forgotten to pick them up when her son pushed down the central locks inside the car.
‘I was a bit panicky at first, wondering how I was going to get him out, but luckily a few other shoppers quickly came to help me out, and one lady working phoned 101. It wasn’t a particularly hot or sunny day so once I knew the rescue crews were on the way I knew he’d be fine.’
The members of the rescue team confirmed that the 14-month-old boy was ‘quickly’ released from the car and returned to his mother uninjured.
