Mum panics as sleeping son in locked car won’t wake up

NEGERI SEMBILAN - A woman in Seremban locked her car with her young son inside while shopping for groceries at a nearby shop, reported Nanyang Siang Pau.

During the 1.50pm incident on Tuesday, the woman had left her son in the car with the engine and air condition running while she went shopping. When the woman came back, she could not wake up her son who had fallen asleep. She sought help from the public, who tried banging on the car window but the boy did not respond.

Worried that he might have fainted, some passers-by suggested that she break the car window to unlock the door, which she refused. A friend of the woman, who was called to the scene, managed to open the door by using a metal rod after trying for 10 minutes.

Luckily, the boy was unhurt.
