Man smashes window to rescue girl from hot car
Taylor Manning says he was walking into a store in Leander when he saw a crowd standing around a car. A little girl was locked inside, still strapped into her car seat. She was alone in the vehicle, and the car was not running.
Manning then grabbed a tire iron out of his car and smashed a window on the opposite side of the little girl.
“I hit it, broke through it, reached in, unlocked the car, crawled through the glass, unbuckled her and got her out,” said Manning. “She was really sweaty and very hot. Her mom ran up and started screaming, ‘I’m not a bad mother! I’m not a bad mother!’”
