Video shows shoppers smash windows to rescue kids in hot car


Shoppers outside a Houston-area strip mall broke a car window to get to two children who had been locked in while their mother reportedly was getting a haircut.

Temperatures in Katy, Texas, were above 90 degrees when the passersby noticed two small children alone in a parked Jeep.

Video shows one man using a hammer to break the window of the Jeep. 

“It was a crazy situation,” Gabriel Del Valle, who took the video with his phone, told Houston television station KHOU. “The kids were in there crying. I mean you would understand. It’s real hot."

According to KHOU, no one called the police. The mom pleaded with everyone on the scene, saying she had made a terrible mistake. KHOU reported that it appears the children were unharmed.
