2-year-old accidentally locked inside running vehicle (Ontario)


Recommended Posts

A tow truck driver is being thanked after rescuing a 2-year-old child who was accidentally locked inside of a running vehicle in Oxford County.


The toddler was alone inside of the vehicle outside of a residence in Blandford-Blenheim Township just after 1 p.m. on Friday when the doors locked. The child’s parents called 911 immediately. While en route, Oxford OPP reached out to a local towing company that arrived on scene and opened the vehicle.


The unharmed child was reunited with “very thankful” parents, OPP said.


Police added the incident serves as a reminder why drivers should never leave their keys inside of a vehicle.


“All parents and caregivers should carry their vehicle’s keys in their pocket in that slight chance the doors on the vehicle lock after you close the door,” said Constable Ed Sanchuk. “If your child is locked in a car. Remain calm, Call 911… As a parent this would be very upsetting so we need to make sure we always remain calm in order to keep our children calm if this should happen.”
