Tod­dler left in locked car

The Queensland Times - - NATION -

A TOD­DLER has been res­cued from a locked car in Mel­bourne’s west.

Fire­fight­ers found the 20month-old boy in Der­rimut alone in the locked ve­hi­cle just after 11am and forced the door open.

Paramedics were also on scene.

Mel­bourne was fore­cast to reach a top of 35C yes­ter­day.

Au­thor­i­ties have re­peat­edly warned chil­dren should never be left unat­tended in the car, as tem­per­a­tures rise to dan­ger­ous lev­els quickly, caus­ing se­ri­ous in­jury or death in as lit­tle as a few min­utes.
