HAMMONTON, N.J. -

The New Jersey State Police came to the rescue of a toddler and puppy after the two were accidentally locked in a hot car.

Two troopers were called to Batsto Village in Hammonton this weekend after a grandmother frantically called in that she had accidentally locked her two-year-old grandson, puppy, and the car keys in the car.

Knowing the car was heating up quickly, police decided to break the window and safely removed them from the car.

Thankfully, both were fine and the grandmother was thankful for the police helping.

Police are reminding everyone to never leave a child or animal in a car even if the window is cracked, and to always check for your keys before placing your kids in the car.
