A 7 week old child was rescued from her mother’s car yesterday afternoon at Tesco in Portstewart.

The child became trapped after the mother’s keys had fallen inside the car and the doors had locked.

A Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said:

“Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) received a call at 3:45pm to a report of a young child in a car at the Coleraine Road, Portstewart area yesterday (Thursday 27th August).

“One Fire Appliance from Portstewart Fire Station was deployed to the scene of a 7 week old child in a car. Firefighters using equipment removed the child from the car. The child was not injured and the incident finished at 4:10pm

NIFRS Group Commander Mark Smith added: “One appliance – with a crew of five – attended the incident at Tesco in Portstewart, where a seven-week-old baby had become trapped inside her mother’s car.

“The keys had fallen inside the vehicle, and when the door was closed, the security system had activated the locks.

“We were able to release the door – and we’re delighted to have been able to reunite the baby with her mother.”
