The Oakland Fire Department rescued a baby from a hot car on Sunday.
OFD’s Truck 7 rescued a six-month-old baby locked inside a hot car while it was 92 degrees out in Oakland. The fire department quickly responded to the call and was able to rescue the child. According to OFD’s tweet, the baby is doing fine.
Data from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration says 21 children have died from being left in hot cars this year alone. With the extreme heat wave predicted to loom over Bay Area this week, parents should be extra careful to ensure children don’t get left inside vehicles.
