I got into a strangers van at the store. what would you have done?
parked next to a purple van.
i spent 2 hours in the store doing grocery shopping, house hold supply shopping, and shopping for dds birthday.
as i was loading it into my drunk i saw what i thought was a doll in the car seat of the van. i didnt think much of it. therd were other toys in there and my dd frequently puts a doll in her brothers car seat when hes not in it.
but then i saw it move. for a minute i thought it was my imagination. but it opened its eyes and cried.
i didnt know what else to do so i dialed 911.
i explained to the operator and she told me check if the van was locked. it wasnt. so i took the baby out of the seat and held it till the police got there.
the baby was burning up. poor thing was dehydrated and had to go to the hospital.
the officer took my statement and i stuck around for awhile.
they went in to try to find the parents or whoever drove the van and no one came forward.
sadly this isnt a rare thing in our town.. i just dont understand why anyone would leave their baby alone in a vehicle. and an unlocked when at that.
poor baby. its story, muggy and humid out today. and that baby was in there atleast for 2 hours i was in the store, plus however long before then...
