After forgetting key inside the car, a Dad has smashed the windshield to rescue his crying baby.

The baby was rescued from a hot car earlier this week after the kid’s family accidentally left the car key in the vehicle in Texas, USA.

Footage of the rescue taken by a bystander shows the scene unfolding in the parking lot in Harlingen, which is in the southern part of Texas.

It was not clear how long the child was in the vehicle before being rescued. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, it takes just 10 minutes for a car to heat up by 20 degrees.

Children’s body temperature rises three to five times faster than adults. When children are left in a hot vehicle, the situation can quickly become dangerous.
