It was a race against the clock to save a baby trapped inside a car in the blistering Florida sun earlier this month. Christina Tufford accidentally locked her 10-month-old daughter, Maddie, and her keys in the car in Stuart. Tufford called OnStar, but her account had expired, leaving the company with no way of unlocking the car via satellite. Ten minutes into the drama, the air conditioner automatically turned off and the temperatures inside the car started to rise.

What in the world?? You stand there crying? Wait for onstar, wait for police... "I thought I was going to lose my daughter" she says. Um, how about you BREAK THE WINDOW??!? I would have done that immediately, not letting it get to that point. I get she was upset and scared, but how in the world does this happen without maternal instinct kicking in?? Women have literally LIFTED cars off of their children in emergencies somehow. You can break a damn window, lady.
Break the corners of car windows in emergencies, all the pressure goes to the center.

To clarify for everyone yelling at the mom the window was made out of reinforced glass or some related material. The baton couldnt break it.

Something very similar happened to me and my two kids were in the vehicle and I was TERRIFIED! As soon as I got the kids buckled into their seats, somehow the doors had locked (still NO clue how) and my keys were sitting on the center console (I had set them there while buckling them in). I shut the back door and went to open my door to get in to drive off and it wouldn't open. Here I am, staring at my keys on the center console, 5 month old and 5 year old in the back, in South Texas, middle of the day in the summer time!! I started to panic (huge mistake but I couldn't help it) and so my 5 year old started to panic. I kept trying to tell her to open the door but she was freaking out too and didn't know how to unlock the lock beside her or how to get out of her seat. I'm hysterical beating on window worried about rising temperatures as the car was already hot from sitting in sun. I was so lucky that it happened in my mother's driveway so she came outside and when it became clear that my 5 year old was too panicked to unlock door I took my mom's car and rushed as fast as I could to my house to get the spare keys (I didn't live far at all, which was a blessing- otherwise I would have smashed window out). I cannot describe my relief once the door was open and I could turn the car on and the AC started blowing. The kids were all clammy and sweaty and it wasn't very long at all so I can see how things can get life threatening very quickly. Thankfully they were okay. I would not have wanted to continue to live if it had turned out any other way. The guilt would be unsurprisingly astounding. I now have my keys on a lanyard and I keep them around my neck while I put kids in and until I get in the car and go to start vehicle. Scariest thing ever !!!

Why the hell they have to wait for other to save their child? Doesn’t make any sense. I won’t even wait a minute to break the window. It just a window.

If this happens to you, do what these people did; break a window that's not near the baby, so that way no glass can get on the child's face, and you can get in the car.

After 6 decades of waaaaay too much key drama, I made an extra set of important keys, put em on a lanyard and always keep them on me.

I asked my dad about this. He said “why won’t she breaks the window? If she’s a good mom she will break it herself”

Yea I don’t think a Mexican mom would break the window because they would think it would be TOO expensive to repair the car lol

I'll never understand the parent(s) who lock child/baby/pet in a hot car, the parent claiming the car key locked inside. Because I always wear a lanyard around my neck has a car key. Even if I'm locked out of electronic locking car, I can use the car key from my lanyard. I know I'll never hear why a parent doesn't carry a spare key to car.

*This is one of the reasons I no longer have GM vehicles equipped with OnStar. Because if you have an emergency like this and your subscription is inactive, they will not do anything about it, unlike Mercedes Benz’s M-Brace or Lexus Link which will have a emergency reconnection in cases like this.*

Making sure the car ain't locked is so freaking basic. Someday, she'll prolly mistake her daughter's boyfriend for her husband. And I wouldn't be surprised.
