Summertime is usually when people worry most about locking their children inside cars. That's usually when the horror stories happen.
But a Christmastime incident in Hustonville - one with a happy ending - directed attention to what should be done when an accident like this occurs.
According to a 911 transcript and statements made last week in Lincoln Fiscal Court, a Hustonville woman called 911 at 9:37 p.m. Dec. 11, saying she'd locked her 7-month-old child in a car.
The dispatcher at the 911 Center decided against sending emergency medical personnel because the child appeared to be in no immediate danger. The car wasn't running but was inside a garage.
