Work-release inmates help rescue Florida baby locked in SUV

National

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) – Some work-release inmates made Valentine’s Day rescue when a Florida couple accidentally locked their baby inside their SUV.
    
Pasco County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kevin Doll told WFLA-TV, sister station to WKRG, the parents could not afford a locksmith, and the father intended to break a window.
    
That’s when a crew of trusties working nearby in their black-and-white striped uniforms offered to help.
    
They helped pry open the front door just enough for one inmate to use a coat hanger to push a button that unlocked the SUV.
    
The baby’s mother, Shadow Lantry, told WPEC-TV the infant was “just sitting there happy” throughout Thursday’s ordeal.
    
Sheriff Chris Nocco told WZVN-TV the trusties “want to do the right thing in life.”
