Prisoners break into car to SAVE baby’s life after dad accidentally locks girl inside
A GROUP of inmates broke into a car to save a baby girl’s life after she was accidentally locked inside by her dad.
The five prisoners used a wire coat hanger to unlock the door after seeing the anxious dad standing outside the locked car near a Florida court.
The dad told them he had accidentally left his keys and his one-year-old baby in his vehicle, according to ABC News.
When the dad said he could not afford a locksmith, the inmates jumped into action and teamed up with deputies from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
“Surprised when somebody had a wire coat hanger, we were able to get the door open enough to get it in there, unlock the door,” Richard Stanger of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office told ABC 7.
He said that the inmates “know they made bad mistakes, bad choices, but they want to do the right thing in life.”
Mobile footage captured by the baby’s mum, Shadow Lantry, shows the inmates and the deputies working hard to get the door open.

“There’s only a very small percentage of those criminals out there that want to fight us and want to attack us, but a lot of them, like these individuals, they know they made bad mistakes, bad choices but they want to do the right thing in life,” Nocco told ABC Action News.
The parents made sure their child was fine and thanked everyone for their help.
Experts advise never to leave your child alone in the car.
