Toddler Can’t Stop Laughing After Locking Himself In Car While 5 Firefighters Try To Rescue Him

Toddler Brandon Emery, 14 months, could probably host one of those how-to-keep-stress-free seminars. Recently he accidentally locked himself in his mom’s car but kept his cool and had a blast with the firefighters who came to save him!

Everything started when Brandon’s mother, Kirsty Green, had placed her car keys in the boot while she was loading the vehicle with groceries. Her son pushed down the central locks inside the car, and there was no way she could get him out.

“I was a bit panicky at first, wondering how I was going to get him out”, Brandon’s mother, Kirsty Green, told Daily Mail. “Luckily a few other shoppers quickly came to help me out, and one lady <…> phoned 101.”

The rescue crews from Bude Community Fire Station, Cornwall, England, quickly arrived at the scene and started using small hand tools on the car to free Brandon. The toddler was loving every second of it and couldn’t stop smiling. However, he then found a two pence coin inside the car and put it into his mouth.

“That’s when I started to panic,” Green said. “I thought, ‘Oh God, what if he chokes on it.'” The firefighters reacted swiftly and smashed the rear window of the car, returning Brandon to his mom before anything bad happened. “They were amazing, and I think just as much as they were keeping Brandon entertained, he was equally making them laugh.”

I am not sure what I should think of this...the toddler surely is adorable, it is nice that he had fun, and it is good that the firefighters acted so professionally yet friendly. However, boasting with such an indicent and even putting your face on the Web after you put your baby at risk (he might as well have put something in his mouth and choked) just feels wrong. When stupidity becomes socially acceptable, we have done something wrong.

If anyone thinks "stupidity" is too hard: say carelessness. Yes, locking yourself out of the car, flat etc. can happen to everyone (and it probably does at some point), but when you have a baby in a car keep your keys in your pockets, hands, or wherever else directly at your body. Period.

This is real life folks, not bad parenting, we are all human and do shit, only some of us are ok about admitting it. Also maybe they posted this to show what can happen if you're not careful, but luckily the wee guy was ok. I don't care what anybody says no-one is perfect.

Yes....let's lighten up. It can happen to anyone. It just take a few seconds for things to happen. Sometimes all a parent has to do is turn their head away for a split second and something goes wrong. I hope that it does not happen to all these perfect parents...or maybe it has and they just won't admit it.

Unless, you are watching every little move and steps of your child - such a thing can happen. Sure you have to keep your child safe - but this kind of attitude, that whatever bad happens, it is because the parent is irresponsible... I just think this is too much...We are all human beings, and we cannot be 24/7 super-focused on the kid.
