NORWALK, Conn. (WTNH) — Norwalk police had to rescue a one-year-old girl after she locked herself in a hot car on Friday morning.

Around 11:30 a.m. Friday, officers say they got a call from the child’s caretaker that the little girl was locked in a BMW at the Rowayton Library.

When Patrol Officer Jeremy Salley arrived, he noticed the little girl’s face was red and sweaty. He used a spring loaded window punch to break the driver’s window. Officer Salley crawled through the broken window and rescued the child as the car’s security system would not let the doors to be opened.

The investigation revealed the child had been playing with the keys and had accidentally locked herself in the car. Police say no criminal charges will be filed.
