A 2 year old child was left inside a car at Makro’s in Jomtien on Tuesday afternoon while his mother went shopping. She left the car running but the child removed the key and locked the doors which deactivated the air-conditioning.
Security Guards and Rescue Workers arrived to assist the child who was becoming more agitated and was close to losing consciousness inside the locked car. The father of the child, Khun Gitipat aged 42, soon arrived and gave permission to rescuers to smash the rear passenger-side window with a fire extinguisher as previous attempts to break-into the White Honda Jazz were unsuccessful.
The child called “An” was pulled from the car and was soaked with sweat and in a dazed state.
The Child was not re-hydrated at the scene and offers of medical assistance were turned down by the couple who opted to drive away to save any further embarrassment.
The incident was not reported to Police.
