Firefighters rescue Grantham toddler from locked car
A toddler had to be rescued after he was accidentally locked in his mum’s car.
A four-man crew from Grantham fire station were sent to Stathern Walk at around 2.30pm on Tuesday, after a call reporting that a baby had been locked in a car.
Firefighters arrived to find 14-month old Wilson Willis-Burns grinning from his carseat.
His mum, Chelsea Willis, said: “I gave Wilson my keys to play with as I strapped him into his carseat to go and collect his brother from nursery. I then put them on my front seat. It was only when I shut my car door that I realised that I had locked the keys inside.”
After a few failed attempts to prise the doors open, Chelsea contacted the fire service.
She said: “They came with their lights flashing and sirens blaring. Wilson loved it.”
It took the fire fighters 30 minutes to reunite the toddler with his mum.
Chelsea added; “I am very grateful. They even gave Wilson a fire service teddy bear.”
