Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Fire crews rescue girltrapped in Keighley car Fire crews rescue girltrapped in Keighley car

Firefighters rescued a child locked in a hot car outside a primary school.

The girl, thought to be around two-years-old, was trapped inside the black Audi A6 when her parents accidentally locked it with the keys inside. The fire service was called out just before noon on Saturday to the car, which was parked outside Merlin Top Primary Academy in Braithwaite, Keighley.

Keighley Crew Commander Darren Creighton said the girl had started to cry because of the heat.

He said: “The parents had accidentally locked the keys in the car but the child was too small to be able to use them. The child was getting a bit distressed.“We broke a small window on the other side of the car to the child, reached in with a pole and hooked the keys out.”

He said after the child had had a drink of water, from a stash kept on the fire engine, she was fine.
