Dramatic dash cam video shows moment deputy saves girl from hot car

Dramatic dash cam video shows moment deputy saves girl from hot car

When Dunn arrived, he saw the auto, a 2005 Toyota Corolla, with the windows rolled up. "She called 911 the next morning claiming that someone stole her vehicle with the child inside", Fox 13 News reported. The newly released video shows Dunn running across a parking lot as he held the girl's head.

Police responding to a report of a missing girl on June 17 found the girl sitting in her mother's auto alone. "I felt for a pulse".

The child became responsive once Dunn blasted the air conditioning with her in his patrol vehicle.

The deputy carried her to the trauma center and left after realizing there was not much else he could do. "You're OK", he said.

On the sheriff's office Facebook page, he says once she was in his air-conditioned patrol auto, she slowly started showing signs of life.

'Once the cold air hit her, that's when I started noticing her eyes kind of fluttering'.

"I remember one thing distinctively was my hand on her chest and feeling her heart racing".

The girl's mother, 33-year-old Casey Dyan Keller, was arrested and faces charges of child neglect with great bodily harm. She was booked into Seminole County jail on $15,000 bond.

The child had been left after she had gone for a journey to the booze shop with her mother the day before. He can be heard in the video saying: "It's OK, baby".

It's unclear whether the Florida Department of Children and Families is involved or whether the child is in the mother's care.

The kid was taken to the hospital immediately after when Deputy Dunn put on his sirens and rushed her to get help.
