BODY CAM: Officer breaks glass to save child from hot car


Atlanta Police moved quickly to save a 1-year-old girl accidentally locked in a hot car in a grocery store parking lot.

And it was caught on camera.

Officers decided to smash the window and free her.

“I was communicating with her as much as I could through the window,” said Officer Andrew Gilchrease. “And she was calm. She’s the rock star in all of this. She was calm. She didn’t panic. I was just fortunate to be in a position to help someone that was in need.”

The girl was checked out and is OK.

The child’s grandmother, who locked her in the car, will not face charges because it was an accident.
