A 1-year-old child was locked inside a car under the sun, citizens near the area tried to help unlock the car in fear for the safety of the child. After the car was successfully unlocked the mother started complaining about how there were scratches and marks on her car along with claiming for damages from the good citizens that tried to help the child.
The incident took place at 7.30 am on the 14th of this month when a child was discovered locked in a White MG SUV car with a Bangkok license in Songkhla province. The child was sitting in a child’s car seat on the back seat of the car. The mother had parked the car and left the car remote inside the car when she closed the driver’s door the car automatically locked.
At the same time, a woman walked by who turned out to be a locksmith and had previous experiences in unlocking doors. She tried to use a wire and inserted it through the window but it did not work. Other citizens tried to use a knife, but that also did not work.
After 30 minutes the citizens advised the mother to break a window for the safety of the child. The mother did not want to that so she called the MG call center and asked them to help her unlock the car by giving the remote signal through the phone. Finally, the car unlocked and the child was successfully removed from the car.
The mother was unhappy that her car door had scratches on it and demanded the locksmith who was one of the citizens trying to help the child to pay for any damages caused to the door. The locksmith left her phone number with the mother and stated that the mother can contact her to negotiate on the damages.
The other citizens in the accident were extremely disappointed with how the mother was acting to the locksmith and the citizens. The good citizens, in this case, don’t want the case to be a bad example so that in the future other citizens would be too afraid to help in fear of getting themselves in trouble if they see a child stuck in a car.
