Deputies rescue baby from hot car after mom locks self out

DIAMOND BAR, Calif. -- It's every mother's worst nightmare. A Diamond Bar mom had just placed her baby in an infant carrier inside her SUV and closed the door.

That's when she realized that she had locked the car and left the keys inside the infant carrier.

They could see the baby's face turning red and sweating profusely.

Deputies took immediate action and broke the window to rescue the 6-month-old from the hot car.
