  • Need more info. before replying.

    Is the baby alone in the car?

    Is the car locked?

    Does there appear to be a parent or caregiver to this child nearby?

  • If it were warm outside, I would get the baby out no questions asked right then and there. I would call 911 from my cell phone too. I wasn't warm outside I would still call 911 from my cell phone, but I wouldn't bust a window or anything unless the baby seemed to be in immediate danger(like choking or something). I would wait by the car until the police arrived. I wouldn't leave the baby in any circumstance to go look for the mother. Something could happen to the baby in the meantime and God forbid if I found the mother, she'd regret ever leaving the house that day.

  • Call the police and stay by the car. If I could tell something was wrong I would do whatever it took to get the baby out.

  • Sorry, the baby is in the locked car and crying and no parent anywhere around.

  • If the child is alone, I would definitely call the police, but if someone is in the car with the baby, I would carry on.
