A Keene New Hampshire Police Officer was in for a frightening shock when he responded to what he believed to be a rescue situation of a baby locked and abandoned in a vehicle. As it turns out what was believed to be a baby was merely a lifelike doll.
Lieutenant Jason Short says that once he received the distress call he raced to the scene as fast as he could expecting the worst.
Short arrived to find the windows closed of the car in question and he immediately spotted the child seat. Short was quoted as saying; “It was draped with a light blanket, and I could see little feet out with the non-soled shoes and a bottle of milk,”.
Short then shattered the window with his baton fearing the worst. However shortly after attempting to breathe air back into what he believed to be baby he discovered that it was nothing more than a doll.
The doll was a “reborn” doll which is made to look completely human and lifelike and valued at over $2000.
Apparently the owner of the vehicle started collecting these dolls after losing her son as a way to help her cope.
In the end all parties learned something from the mix up in order to avoid any future confusion.
It is important to know that children and animals should never be left alone locked inside a vehicle.
