As the maximum temperature in China is on a constant increase due to an engulfing heatwave, it is probably not a good idea to leave your child inside a locked car.

However, this mother did just that, and had a rather questionable response to her baby's rescue.

According to Shanghaiist, the mother left her one-year-old child locked inside her car at a carpark in Chongqing.

When firefighters arrived at the scene to rescue the child, the mom first questioned them on which window would be cheapest to replace, as seen in this video.

After informing her that the passenger side window would be the cheapest, only then did she allow the firefighters to smash the window to rescue her child.

Online reactions towards this episode have been divided.

Some netizens criticised the mother's overt pragmatism.

Some thought there was nothing wrong with her behaviour.

"After she assessed that the child is in no danger, is it wrong for her to find which window is cheaper? It will only take a few seconds at most?"Photo: Weibo

At least she was not as stubborn as this woman, who entirely declined to break any windows despite her child's pleas.
