It is very dangerous for babies to be left alone especially inside the car. They are in danger of suffocating because of poor ventilation. This police officer followed his instincts by saving a young one inside closed heated vehicle.
A car parked in Walmart that took the attention of police officer Lt. Jason Short. Apparently, inside was what appeared to be a baby. He explained, “It was draped with a light blanket, and I could see little feet out with the non-soled shoes and a bottle of milk.”
Short decided to break the car’s window with his baton to save the baby. Upon seeing the child, he thought that it was lifeless because it was not breathing. He even placed a finger on its mouth to see if there was air coming out.
Later on, he realized that what seemed like a baby was just a doll.
Carolynne Seiffert owns the lifelike doll which costs more than $2000. She is a massive collector of the item and keeps about 40 of them. Apparently, it was her way of coping up with her son’s death.
“I’ve been laughed at and embarrassed by all the fuss. You can’t know how people choose to deal with their losses in life,” Seiffert shared.
The cop insisted to pay for the destruction of Seiffert’s car window.
He said that he would have never thought that it was only a doll at first glance. The police officer added that he would do the same if ever he faces the same situation and it was a real child.
The doll collector placed a bumper sign on her vehicle saying that what’s inside the car are dolls and not living babies to avoid the same incident from recurring.
