SINGAPORE - A three-month-old baby was sent to hospital on Sunday (Oct 11) after being rescued from a locked car in Pasir Ris.

Stomp reader 'Rykal' spotted Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers trying to rescue a baby stuck in a car parked at Block 537, Pasir Ris Street 51.

According to him, the baby - who looked to be a few months old - was stuck in the black car for about 20 minutes.

In a phone interview with Stomp, he said: "They took about five to ten minutes to rescue the baby stuck inside.

"The child's parents were also nearby, I think the father was standing there.

"I also saw a man come forward to help, but he wasn't a passerby, I think he was a locksmith, as he came with a key."

Rykal added that an ambulance as well as police were at the scene.

Stomp contacted the SCDF for more details on the incident. The SCDF spokesperson said: "SCDF received a call for assistance at 12.28pm today.

"One red Rhino and one ambulance was dispatched.

"A three-month-old baby was conveyed conscious to KKH (KK Women's and Children's Hospital)."

She added that the SCDF saved the baby after the locksmith opened the door.
