While a Texas mom was inside a strip mall getting her hair cut, her two children were trapped inside her hot vehicle crying out for help.
Shoppers noticed the children and decided to take matters into their own hands by busting out the windows of the vehicle to get the small boy and girl out.
Gabriel Del Valle, who was on hand and took video with his cell, told KHOU, “It was a crazy situation. The kids were in there crying. I mean you would understand. It’s real hot.”
In the clip you can see the window getting shattered by someone swinging a hammer. Del Valle added, “And even then they could barely open the doors because there was a child lock on.”
After several tense moments the two children were eventually freed. The mother had come out from the salon and told the shoppers that she had only left her son and daughter there temporarily so she could get her hair cut.
Surprisingly the police were never contacted after the mother was said to have pleaded with everyone at the scene – admitting that she made a terrible mistake.
