Officer reportedly broke into a car to rescue a baby locked inside, only to discover it was a lifelike doll. The responding officer was called to a Walmart for a report of a baby locked inside of a car in the parking lot, per reports. Because it was a hot day, Short decided immediately upon seeing feet sticking out from under a blanket that he needed to break the window to rescue the baby.
After the officer, Lt. Short, had broken into the car and pulled the blanket away, he thought the child was dead, so he breathed into its mouth, but the lungs did not inflate. He then realized that the baby was, in fact, a realistic-looking doll and that its mouth did not open. He canceled the call for an ambulance. When the officerfound the owner of the doll, Carolyne, who was getting her hair cut during the incident, she told the officer that it was designed to look as much as a real baby as possible.
The officer said the doll even felt like a real baby when he picked it up. The owner had purchased the doll, named Ainslie from a doll nursery for $2,300 the week before the incident, according to Sentinel Source. The doll, called a reborn doll, is handcrafted from silicone so it looks as realistic as possible. The woman has a collection of reborn dolls.
She says she plans to put a sticker on her car to alert others that the babies inside the car are not real. Ladies and gentlemen, we are republishing this story amid recent reports that indicate a record number of children have died from heatstroke in cars in the last few months in 2022.
