An incident happened at Computer village in Lagos State on Friday which would have ended up being a tragedy if not for the intervention of the traders in Computer village. A mother left her baby who was not up to 2 years old inside the car with the windows all rolled up.
After about 30 minutes later, with the woman not in sight, the abandoned child started crying and was gasping for breath when passersby looked into the car and saw the baby. They immediately went into action to save the suffocating baby.
Naijauto gathered that the rescuers looked for a means to get the car window to open so as to free up the baby.
