7-month-old left in car during high temps rescued

A 7-month-old child was rescued from a hot car by a Kern County sheriff deputy Wednesday evening.

At about 4:45 p.m., Kern County Sheriff's Office deputy Galvez was sent to the 11000 block of San Gorgornio street regarding an infant locked inside a vehicle during high temperatures.

Galvez said he reacted quickly and determined the baby was at-risk, was hot and perspiring, and was lethargic.

Galvez broke the drivers side glass out of the vehicle to render aide to the child, deputies said.

The child was later taken to an area hospital as a precaution.

There is no word whether charges will be filed against the parents or guardians of the child.
