A two-year-old child accidentally locked himself in his grandmother’s car in Colbinabbin on Thursday as temperatures rose to 30°C.
The child’s grandmother, Violet Town resident Kate (who did not want her surname published), said she had stopped at a Colbinabbin store to get a drink.
She had gone into the store with the boy and when she returned she put him into the child car seat.
He pressed the key which locked the car, so Kate put the car keys into the front seat and absent-mindedly closed the door before opening the driver’s door.
‘‘It just shows how easily it can happen,’’ she said.
The child was eventually rescued by district mechanic Brian Tuohey.
Although it was a hot day, the child had a bottle of juice in his hand and remained calm as Mr Tuohey tried to remove a side window.
Kate called the RACV, who in turn called the CFA and ambulance but Mr Tuohey removed the window moments before Colbinabbin CFA arrived.
The child was lifted out of the car unharmed.
