A little girl in Ningbo, Zhejiang province was rescued after carelessly being left behind by the worst father in the world in a car frying under the summer sun.
The child was forgotten inside her father’s Audi (ugh) last Monday afternoon. The father parked the car and left to deal with some “urgent” company matters, taking with him three of his relatives’ kids, but somehow leaving his own young daughter behind to roast, Ningbo Daily reports.
Fortunately, the little girl was able to flash the emergency lights in the car and a nearby delivery man and security guard noticed and found her crying inside the vehicle. Together, the two called the police for help.
Police arrived quickly and broke one of the windows and pulled the 5-year-old to safety. She was soaked with sweat and nearly passed out.
Some minutes after her rescue, the anxious dad returned to the scene and apologized profusely to his daughter.
The story follows similar tragic cases. On June 27, a four-year-old Hunan boy died from heat exhaustion after his parents forgot him in the back of a car. On July 14, a three-year-old girl in Shandong suffocated to death as temperatures soared to 30 degree Celsius after her nursery school principal left her in a scorching car for nine hours.
