On Wednesday evening, the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station received a call that an infant was accidentally locked in a parked car in Newhall.

“Earlier this evening, the mother returned home with her two children and after she and one of her children got out of the vehicle, the door closed,” Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station wrote in a post on the sheriff’s social media page.

When the mother went to open the rear passenger door to get her infant out of the car seat, she found that the door was locked and that her keys were inside the vehicle, according to Miller.

With outside temperatures in the triple-digits, the mother made an emergency call to the Sheriff’s Station.

The deputies quickly arrived on scene, broke the car’s window and rescued the infant from the car seat.

“The infant was hot and sweaty but seemed to be in good condition as not that much time had passed,” Miller wrote.
