Her keys and phone were also in the locked car with the child.

The woman ran to a neighbor’s house to borrow a phone and called 911.

The responding deputy saw the child sweating heavily, so he broke out a rear window with a wrench.

The boy was medically cleared and was not harmed in the incident.

Police say if you see a child locked in a hot car, call 911 and break the window if needed.

Tennessee has laws that protect good Samaritans who break car windows to rescue kids and animals locked inside.
